If you have a vision of a successful career; working in a range of industries, companies and even countries. If you dream of working on the most exciting projects and enjoying every minute of it then you probably think you will have to have a good university degree to enable you to do this – even to have the possibility of doing this. But think again – careers are no longer as traditional as they once were – there are opportunities in jobs that didn’t exist a decade ago and even in traditional roles the way we view a career has changed.
Take apprenticeships for example – they used to be viewed as a way to train tradespeople – a slightly less academic choice of career. Yet now we have Higher apprenticeships such as the project management apprenticeships that results in a degree level qualification. Even in more traditional professions such as accountancy and engineering it is necessary to continue to take training courses and develop your skills and expertise throughout your career.
