Getting the most up to date education and training for any career is paramount these days when employment is far less easy to walk into than it ever used to be. At one time you could simply leae school, take a glance at the local paper, or study the post cards up in various newsagents’ windows and jobs were plentiful. Unless you went to a prestigious top school, the average state school student would be expected to sit O levels and if bright, A levels after that. Those destined for university or officer training in the military would have been picked out and nurtured very early on and given the meaningful education to channel the student on a given path.
Today it is possible to browse on line and find courses and tutoring services to fill any gaps before sitting major school exams or for sitting university entrances. Everything is out there. Just browse and the world is your oyster!
