Hi amjo,

I hope you are well,

A Level Geography is likely to help open many doors across different employment sectors because of the transferable skills you learn. Therefore, you may want to look into the employment sector which interests you. A great tool to use is the National Careers Service, and you can explore various jobs by categories. Each category outlines its requirements, including the minimum qualifications required for that role.

https://nationalcareers.service.gov.uk/explore-careers

It could mean that the job which interests you requires no additional qualifications and you can apply for it with you're A Level qualifications. Or the vocation may suggest an apprenticeship either Level 3 (A Level Equivalent) or Level 4/5/6/7 (Foundation Degree Equivalent or above). Or the role may require a specialist degree qualification.

To help you get started, UCAS has a guide of careers related to geography. The list below is not extensive; however, it may give you an idea of vocations with A Level Geography. https://www.ucas.com/job-subjects/geography
• Countryside Ranger
• Estate Manager
• Army Soldier
• Aid Worker
• Travel and Tourism
• Planning and Built Environment

Out of curiosity, have you considered studying a Geography degree? It could open up more opportunities making it easier to work in a career that interests you the most. To get an idea of what studying geography at university may be like, my classmate Mollie has written a brilliant blog highlighting her experience so far. http://blogs.hud.ac.uk/students/whic...cal-geography/

To help you get an idea of what employment opportunities you could pursue as a geography graduate, The University Of Huddersfield has a list of careers you could have. https://courses.hud.ac.uk/full-time/...raphy-bsc-hons
• Environmental Management
• GIS Analyst
• Nature Conservation
• Teaching
• Commercial Enterprise
• Finance Banking

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask.

All the best with your studies,

Best Wishes,
