What are they going to do?
Most people spend a third of their lives at work and spend more time with their work
colleagues than with their families or friends. So it is important that people enjoy their work as
much as possible: and enjoying work means choosing the right career in the first place.
People in Britain can start work at the age of sixteen, though many people stay at school
after this age. For all people, as they approach the end of their school lives the big question is
what are they going to do?
Most young people have several choices open to them when they leave school. Here are
some of them. They can leave school at the age of sixteen and take a low-paid job, often a
manual one such as working in a shop or a factory.
They can leave school at sixteen, take a job but spend one day a week at a College of
Further Education learning more about the theory and practice of their work. Many people who
are learning a practical skill for example, car mechanics, caterers, hairdressers or typists do
this. At the end of their training, they get a qualification, which gives them a better chance of
promotion and higher wages. At the same time they have gained practical experience in their job,
because they have been working while training.
Many people stay at school to take A level * G.C.E.** examinations. This means
working very hard and earning no money for two or three more years. However, with A-levels, a
student has more choices open to him. If he goes to a Technical College, he can get a
qualification in a practical skill such as engineering, art and design, secretarial work, business
studies and child-care. He can go to a College of Education and train to be a teacher. These
training courses take from two to seven years.
If a student has very good results in his A-levels, he can go to university and get a degree
in a subject like Languages, Maths, Philosophy, Literature or Science. This normally takes three
years. However, after such an academic course, many students still have no practical skill for
doing a job.
