    I'm in year 11 and I was thinking after I leave I will do a vision express or specsavers optical apprenticeship. They have lots of progression and I can become a manager, and I've seen some jobs where people are giving a high salary for a optician store manager. So is this a good thing to do, any thoughts?

    If its what you want to do then why would it not be a good idea? Apprenticeships are very popular now and practical too because you're being paid as you learn.

    Oh true, also there's this college course too which is a business diploma and it covers finance, management, law and lots of other sectors. Which would you say is better?
