    Potential employers should be understanding about the lack of work references, but they'll want character references instead. As a rule of thumb, you want someone as a reference who is a "Professional" - teacher, working in health or the third sector, working in civil service. Generally includes people with office jobs. That person also shouldn't be closely related to you - i.e. no siblings or parents.

    In other words, do you have a favourite teacher? Have you ever volunteered somewhere, or been to Guides/Scouts/similar organisations? Do you have a decent relationship with someone at your local library, or a family friend who might be able to help?
