From weighing the pros and cons of various academic routes to paving your own path in education, What Next? is your companion in navigating the crucial next steps of your learning journey.

Considering further education? Delve into A-Levels, BTECs, and more at current or new colleges and institutions where you can focus on the subjects you are good at and enjoy. If you are looking to pursue a particular career then further education could be the right path for you.

Or perhaps you're leaning towards a hands-on approach with vocational training or apprenticeships. Not only do apprenticeships and vocational training help close the skills gap in various industries, but they also offer hands-on experience and the opportunity to earn while learning. If you are keen to immerse yourself directly into the workforce, then now’s your chance.

For those dreaming of university, we demystify everything from course selection and campus life to the UCAS application process and student loans. And if distance learning or alternative higher education pathways spark your interest, we've got you covered too.
