If you decide to follow an apprenticeship route your employer will decide your place of study. If you choose to study A Levels or BTECs you also need to choose where to study. There are three main options:
- Sixth form at a school
- Further education college
- Sixth form college
Below are some questions to consider when discussing your options for studying Further Education:
- Do you want to stay somewhere familiar or go somewhere new?
- Do you want to study at a large institution where there are lots of students, or would you prefer a smaller institution with fewer students?
- Does the school or college offer the subjects or qualifications you want or needs to take?
- Are you predicted to meet the entry requirements for this institution?
- How easy is the institution to get to?
- Will you be able to afford the transport costs?
- Does the institution have the facilities that are important to you (e.g. sporting facilities, art studios…)?
