At 16 you are faced with some big decisions that can make a real difference to the university and career options open to you in the future. Do I stay at school and study for A levels or Highers? What subjects should I choose? Should I go straight to work, or train on-the-job with an apprenticeship?
Attracted by an advertisement for apprentices I decided to join the company’s work-based degree scheme rather than going straight to university.
