Getting ideas for a career can be quite an exhausting process. In the ‘good old days’ i.e. in the 1950s and 1960s for example, there was a et pattern to this. At school if you were quite bright then you passed your 11 Plus exam and went to grammer school. This then usually led to college or university if you were particularly gifted or from a richer background. Everyone else just made their way through the school system and made the most of any careers advice that could be on offer from an interested teacher or two.
Going to technical college offerd many possibilities and great careers have been carved from doing just that. Also, going into the forces ensured great training for life outside in civvy street. these days, the career will require a degree course of 3 or 4 years a university and this includes healthcare and nursing. Continual personal development then replaces the early training to ensure knowledge is renewed.
