Going to university or college is a big commitment, in both time and money, but by getting a degree your child will be making a big investment in their future. It will increase their chances of getting a good job and improve their earning potential. For many young people it is their first taste of independence and an exciting opportunity to try new activities and meet new friends.
Planning any journey is always going to be difficult if you’re not sure of the destination. The same can be said when planning for the future. For the few young people who know where they want to end up, the planning is logical; for those that don’t it’s more difficult.
If university isn’t for your child, there is also a great range of further education options available including apprenticeship training, a degree level apprenticeship and other skills based traineeships to get them ready for work.
