It was A-level results yesterday. For many of you it is just the beginning of your journey, but for some – if your results are not as hoped – it can feel like the end of the world. Just remember, A-levels may be important but ask anyone a few years into their career, and they will tell you they are just another stepping stone along your journey. Congratulations to those who achieved what they hoped for to carry on their studies. For those who didn’t, just remember that University is just one of many options open to you.

If you’re looking for alternatives there are plenty of other avenues to explore – business apprenticeships are a brilliant way to start earning money whilst developing your commercial experience and building your chosen career. Unsure of where you want to take your career? Internships and work experience are both great ways to gain invaluable practical experience, whilst trying your hand in a wide range of sectors.

Remember, no two people have the same path, and we promise you that everything will work out on the end. You can achieve anything you want in life with hard work, determination, self-belief and a bit of resilience.
