Higher / Further Education & Apprenticeship

Once children have completed their secondary education, they have the option to move onto Higher Education, do an apprenticeship or enter the workplace. Higher Education is education after secondary school; KS5 (sixth form/college) and university level. KS5 education comprises of A Level courses or vocational courses, such as BTECs. Once passed, these are used to enter university and study for a degree. Alternatively, some students will choose to do an apprenticeship. This is on the job training where you will learn the relevant skills, get a qualification, gain experience and get paid.
