So you might be looking into whether university is the right option for you. A few years ago I was in the same situation. I knew I wanted to be a primary school teacher, but I also wanted to travel and take time to consider whether going to university was the right pathway for me.
A-level results day was the day that confirmed that I was never going to university- or so I thought. By the time 6th Form was coming to an end, unlike the rest of my friends, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.
A topic that has cropped up a few times in conversation recently, is how much everybody wants to travel the world.
When I was younger, I never really thought I’d be the travelling type.
I didn’t expect to feel independent enough to want to book myself a round-the-world plane ticket.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my course and being at University (as you’ve all heard a million times,) but I do wonder when my time will come to explore all of the places that are on my bucket list.
We all know how drastically education has changed over the last couple of years. No one is denying it: in this climate, a university degree is no longer enough to land you that dream job. You need to work harder, prove to employers you have the skills they’re looking for and show your determination through everything you do.
