Now that you are on a post-school course at college you are starting out on a possible career direction. The course that you are on will be giving you a good insight into a potential job sector/industry. Whether this is the equine industry, horticulture, sport or something else there is a wealth of information and options to consider. If you have not achieved a grade C in Maths or English GCSE, you will be doing this subject again as part of your course, either as a GCSE or as a functional skills unit. If during your course, you decide that you would prefer to take a different ‘direction’ with either your course or your career this is still possible, but you will need to give it some thought and may want to talk it through with parents/your tutor/the college careers coordinator.
You have several options for after your current course, depending on what level of course it is. If it is a level 1 or 2 course, you could apply for the next course up, so a level 2 or 3 course. If you have passed a level 3 course you can apply to university or work. Also, after doing any level course, you can also apply to other college courses, an apprenticeship or to do voluntary work alongside some further training. It will be important to talk through your ideas with either your tutor and/or the careers coordinator in college to make sure they are realistic, achievable and the best option for you!
