    I have recently just finished my 2 year course studying Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering (180 credits) in which i achieved the grade D*D*D*. I was wondering what the best course of action would be for me in terms of looking for a job. My initial idea was to look for an advanced apprenticeship, but upon completion of these advanced apprenticeships I noticed a lot of them offer the level 3 qualification or equivalent, which i already have and would want to go through again for no reason. Am i right in looking for an advanced apprenticeship, or should i be looking at higher apprenticeships or just straight for a full time job? Any help would be appreciated!

    I believe you can get a level 4 qualification out of a higher apprenticeship, if that's what you're looking for. Ultimately though, it depends on what job you want, and if you have the qualifications for it already; if you do, then it's a bit less clear cut, depending on your longer term goals. If you don't already have what you need, then the most logical step would be to carry on with education of some kind.
