    Hi, I'm 18 and dislike my course, I'm fairly sure that I will drop out after the first year as this course isn't for me.So dropping out after the first year. What jobs can I realistically get? I currently work in a supermarket but I don't want to work there for much longer. Any other alternatives? Maybe apprenticeships?
    Thanks

    Apprenticeships are a good option, some companies will also offer school leaver programs for those with just A levels.

    Have you got an idea what field you want to work in? Those kind of programs (the ones which would be appropriate for someone with Level 3 qualifications) are most common in finance, IT and engineering, though occasionally you can find something in other fields. Have a look at the government apprenticeship website to get an idea.
