Work with training/study
Find out about entrepreneurship and social enterpriseWhen you have finished school, sixth form or college you might want to start work, rather than stay in full-time education.
Sometimes it is good to get started with any job to build your experience. Remember where you start is not likely to be where you end up and that you are probably going to have lots of jobs in your career.
Try for a job with training
If you are job hunting then try and find out what training the company offers and what the opportunities might be for promotion in the future. Try to avoid getting stuck in a job with no prospects to move on.
Try to get a job you can combine with training (leading to a nationally recognised qualification) as this will enable you to continue learning as you work. This could mean that you will have more job satisfaction as you develop and use higher skills and could also mean you get more pay in the future.
