You have finished Year 12, it may seem like most of your classmates have it all worked out – but the likelihood is a lot of your classmates are probably somewhat torn, and confused about what it is they they really want to do career wise after school.
If you fall into this ‘not a clue what I want to do’ bracket, then fear not! There are plenty of options for school leavers that will lead to a successful career and fulfilling future and they don’t all have to involve University.
There are many industries and nationally recognised courses you can explore once you’ve left school, or at any age, without going to Uni or TAFE.
