    I am in my first year of sixth form and am having trouble in deciding what I want to do after sixth form. I don't particularly want to go to university because I feel like I don't really want to be in a classroom for much longer in my life. It gets really really boring. Anyway, I would really like to go into events management because I have had experience organizing events and meetings at school in the past. How should I go about getting a job if I have never worked before and if I have no experience?

    The are three main things you can do after sixth-form. You could go to university, get an apprenticeship or go into full-time employment. With university it would be different to sitting in calls doing your A-levels and you are not there for nearly as long. For an apprenticeship often its at least 1 day a week in college and with full-time employment its practically none (unless you end up doing some off-the-job training which may be similar).

    As for events management an apprenticeship may be good as you can learn more and can get offered a job at the end (often do as they've just trained you for x years). You also don't need experience a lot of the time for apprenticeships as they are there to give you experience so you just need good grades but even so you've said you got experience of organising events so that might come in handy.
