Leavers is over… what comes next?

Leavers is over… what comes next?

It’s always an exciting time of year for high school students, with the end of school and the start of summer, leavers are urged to think, “what comes next?”.

While it can be daunting for anyone to think of what comes next and where they want their life to head, making that decision doesn’t have to be as alarming as you might initially think!

For the leavers of 2018, it’s always important to remember just how many options exist that don’t require ATAR scores. Just because a large amount of leavers want to go to university, it isn’t necessarily the right decision for you and it doesn’t necessarily guarantee job prospects.

If the thought of the next few years being spent behind textbooks, assignments and exams isn’t for you, Skill Hire can help! As a training and employment provider, not only can  you get into nationally recognised training programs, but depending on what you choose, you can also earn money while you do it!

Having just finished high school, there are a number of opportunities available here at Skill Hire, so lets take a look!
