About the book

What Next After School? has established itself as a key guide for helping students to understand the many options available to them as they approach the end of their school years, including education options (academic as well as vocational training), gap years, the world of work, and practical issues such as finances, debts and insurance.
This new 11th edition also includes case studies illustrating how other students have adapted to life after school, as well as detailed information on making the most of the decisions facing all school leavers.
