My GCSEs are coming up and I don’t know which career path is best or what education is best eg. A-level and then Uni or an Apprenticeship and straight into a job?

Gloucester but most people stay there, it’s about 3 hours from where I live 😂
@mrchillbert where is that omg? I live near Hull so I have no clue where that is :)
A levels at Hartpury, bring your horse, so I’m not alone going there next year :)
I am thinking of doing apprenticeship or work where I'll be provided with trainings and where they do bhs stages
@karinalipnicka I live in the UK as well and I’d rather not do A-level as I’m probably going to just collapse under all the work anyway. So you’re doing an apprenticeship or?
Depends if what u want to do it either practical or theory. If you like theory and prefer stay indoors etc like office kinds thing, a-levels and uni might be helpful but if you're interested in doing something practical I'd recommend apprenticeship as then you will learning by doing it and gaining needed experience to do what you want to do.
I'm not sure where u live but currently I'm in the UK and I am on my last year of Equine level 3 extended and after that I want to go out and do practical things as I am interested in becoming a horse trainer and there is no way I'll learn how to do this by sitting in the classroom.
The best type of education depends on you, if you are not the academic type an apprenticeship is definitely the better choice
