Make the most of education

Ideally, education should open your eyes to the world and allow you to reach your full potential.

Not everyone in the UK has the same educational opportunities, but there are always things you can do to help yourself – check the pages for your age-group below. And don’t despair if your education doesn’t work out the first time; there are always other ways to educate yourself.

If you have a particular career or vocation in mind, make sure that you get the qualifications you need to achieve your goals. Have a look at the job profiles on the National Careers Service and Prospects websites to see what you need.  And have a look at our pages on work as well.
