    Well I took a gap year before going uni the following year and my plan was to s cure an apprenticeship for the whole year; that why I would have money and experience. nothing went to plan as I am still underemployed and not being proactive as I was supposed to join a club but I can't do that as I have to pay for council tax and transport.

    I'm in a slightly similar situation myself! I took a gap year and had work lined up to work in a school as a tutor. However, this since hasn't worked out so I have had to make alternative arrangements. I have recently started my own tutoring business and have about 10-12 students who I teach either 1 or 2 hours a week - this would be a good suggestion for you to do as you can earn quite a lot of money through this. Also, I have applied for the position of a lab technician in a local laboratory where I have an interview on Monday. So my advice to you is not to panic because as long as you are proactive in emailing people and looking for opportunities, you will find them.

    I didn't have a lot of experience either - only tutoring a few kids in school but just get a DBS check and you'll be okay. If you need any advice on it feel free to message
