I am starting an open university course in business administration (Accountancy Pathway) in September because I want to improve my qualifications.
I got average GCSE results mostly B's or C's but my A levels were poor only passing Business Studies With a C. I then gave up my chances of going to university (had completely the wrong mentality at that time!
However ive been working behind a bar at a private members golf club for over a year now and have realised the importance of a good job and qualifications.
After lots of research I know I want to get into the insurance industry - looks like just my cup of tea! But less specifically something to do with finance and money.
So i've decided the best way to start is to get a degree part time, by working I want to back up my degree with some work experience. In my situation though I have to be earning money at least £800 a month to pay for basic car insurance, food, general living expenses.
That's what I need help with. What would be the ideal job that could back up my degree - any other qualifications I should be trying to achieve? Also how to get into the insurance industry??!
I'm also half Russian and would like to get a qualification before I completely lose the language!
Any Help would be great thank you!
