    Would help even further for learners looking for Apprenticeships and/or Courses and jobs to include a little more detail or a link where further information can be found, especially if this is the way forward for non-traditional qualified learners.

    I am presently looking for a course in Business Management/Eventing for a youngster of 19 who completed a Level 3 IT Diploma at College and are awaiting universities to get back to him to let him know whether his qualification will allow him to start a Degree. Having 2 years experience in IT support and as an IT administrator he is keen to upgrade his qualifications. Ros Lucas, Education/Careers Consultant
