    I spent the last 2 years crying about my future and then it all clicked into place, an equine dental tech. (Horse dentist) I'm hoping to study on an intensive course abroad after my college course in equine management and then take on an apprenticeship and hopefully get fully qualified. Thing is I'll be self employed and it will take me quite a while to start up so I'd like to start off doing it part time around a different career I can progress in (if all fails!!)

    Could anyone recommend a decent job you can start off with my good GCSEs and (unrelated!) diploma to have as a main career whilst building my business alongside, please? I like to think I'm a caring person and I like to learn new things, I would like the opportunity to rise up positions in the career! Many thanks 😄

    With just GCSEs you don't really have much choice tbh. Retail or admin would be your best bet, although the career progress opportunities aren't fantastic, especially if you only plan to do it part time.
