Exam Results 2018: What Next?

Collecting your results is probably the first time you’re receiving official academic results in person. So, what can you expect (and what if things don't quite go to plan)?

With your exams now out of the way your thoughts may have turned towards the results. You might be worried about whether you’ll get the grades you want or what to do with your future. You might feel stressed, but irrespective of your results you can always succeed as long as you work hard.

Throughout your education the emphasis is always on grades and qualifications. Despite this, work experience and practical employability skills are still key to a successful career. Apprenticeships for example, are a great way to get started in the industry. They give you the chance to work with a real employer, earn a salary and gain real qualifications in a working environment. You can acquire transferable skills from these which will support your future career prospects. CareerScope is here to offer support and guidance tailored to hospitality, where you can learn new skills and lead a rewarding career.
