Did you always know what you wanted to do when you finished education?
Even before college, when I was at school, picking my GCSE’s I had no idea what I wanted to do. I have always been a pretty indecisive person and picking a subject that I’d go on to study for the rest of my life…it’s a pretty big deal.
When I was applying to universities there was very limited information on corporate apprenticeships, I barely had any idea that they even existed. Only after I’d applied to universities that I wasn’t sure I wanted to go to, for courses that I didn’t actually find interesting, did I actually look into apprenticeships. Long story short, I didn’t get into a single one of my chosen Uni’s because I didn’t get the grades and I got offered two apprenticeships from a large insurance company and a finance company. To my parents absolute horror I rejected the apprenticeship offers and decided to go through clearing and got a place at Bournemouth University to study Business Studies. Everything had fallen into place I thought. But I was completely wrong.
