Hello,

I'm 16 years old and have recently left school after completing my GCSEs and I'm set to receive an impressive set of results. I've applied to a local 6th Form College to study A-Levels in German, English Literature, Sociology and Law.

I was always under the impression that I would attend a university, however having rethought my possible options and aspirations, I am now unsure.

My "dream" job that I have always aspired for is a career in stewarding/cabin crew ect. but I'm really unsure of how to get in to this type of job.
I'm aware that there are some courses in travel and tourism ect. at other colleges but I would rather get my A-Levels anyways; am I wasting my time or is this worth while?

What should I do after A-Levels?!

Use the Careers service at College, you've got two years to work it out, you don't need to know/decide now.

I agree! You've got lots of time to sit and think about your future decisions, so try not to worry yourself too much

Have you done research into what qualifications are required to work in cabin crew? Each airline might be different you see. Do you have a particular airline you would really like to work for?

You cna always go to uni later or you can o to college to get some introductory qualifications or you could find a cabin crew apprenticeship. Looks like min age is 18, so id think good A levels would keep your options open. You cna always go to uni at a later date if need be.
