Hayley Dymond, BGLC Careers Advisor, has sourced some interesting videos/presentations from local businesses about Apprenticeships and Post 18 choices, these give a real insight into Apprenticeships and how they work.

There are some really good websites that allow you to look for university courses by entering in your predicted grades and searching for subjects you are interested in.Β  This is really good to see what courses are available and at what universities to give you options to look at.

University websites are amazing and are full of information, guidance and presentations/video to give you everything you need to be able to make an informed choice.Β  We have listed the websites below of the universities that our students tend to choose to study at.
