How about btec media studies? You'll be able to focus all your time on how to edit videos and learning the things around the subject. Tbh you can't just learn to become an influencer in school it's a skill learnt from experience. Your social presence is really weak. The first advice is build up your following on social media sites first line Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat then you could use your following to move into YouTube. Another tip is to wait for another social media platform to pop up so you can join and grow big on until you can branch out to other places. This is what alot of Viners did when vine shut down. Tbh I just say focus on your education and try to become an influencer in your spare time cause becoming successful in YouTube is very hard and you would rather have something to fall back on then being unemployed and desperate.

Consistency is for people who have already built their platform. You can't just randomly make videos consistently and gain followers. You have to lay a foundation of what your channel is going to be about. Have you decided on what your channel is going to be about? You need to be decisive with a plan to really be successful, TM your career advisor will probably have no idea of what you're talking about. Just think it through and consider your other options before making a big decision. I know someone who has 100k subscribers but is still focused on school, it shows that being on YouTube isn't always stable.

I have a laid out video and structure plan Saffron barker, Anastasia Kingsnorth, Lee Hinchcliffe, Jake Mitchell all started out on a consistant video plan consistently uploading i've personally spoken to them about it for advice as you are consistant your watch time goes up the more watch time you have the more the youtube algorithm promotes your content

Yh but unless you have a channel with proper content than those viewers are not going to stay, which you need to become an influencer. Reading over what you said it seems that you don't know alot about becoming an influencer, becoming one requires a lot of things and you can get there in multiple ways. You do need to realise that influencers are getting views and followers becuase they are popular or have the traits of a popular person. And from your following count it doesn't seem you have these traits. I'm not trying to get you down but really consider why you want to become a YouTuber? Is it because of making content or because you want an easier lifestyle with fame? I can obviously tell that you want it but unless your honest I doubt you'd probably become one which a lot of other people will also say.
