Further education<br />Apprenticeship post 18<br />Higher education<br />Employment<br /> Employment with training<br />CONSIDEROPTIONS<br />Higher or Advanced Diploma<br />GCSE<br />18<br />Foundation or Higher Diploma<br />CONSIDEROPTIONS<br />CONSIDEROPTIONS<br />16<br />14<br />Employment withtraining<br />CONSIDEROPTIONS<br />17<br />Main routes through 14-19 education and training in 2015 and beyond<br />GCSE / A-Level<br />FoundationLearning <br />Foundation Learning<br />Apprenticeship<br />There are, of course, many other optionsafter you turn 18, including a gap year and volunteering<br />Functional Skills and Personal,Learning and Thinking Skills<br />Well before the decision points information and advice will be critical to guide young people to make the best choice for them in relation to their prior learning.<br />Some students may change paths at 17 because<br />there are more one year courses available after 16.<br />The Diploma combines theoretical study with practical experience based around a work-related curriculum.
