DD left college earlier this year to start year 12 again in September...

Hi all.

My DD was very unhappy at a sixth form college which she started in September 2016 last year for a variety of reasons. So, we thought (her idea) that it is best for her to leave that 'toxic' environment as she used to say and start year 12 again at a school sixth form, rather than a sixth form college.

However, she is now incredibly bored, and is the type of person that wants to be learning something new, have something to focus on, be kept busy etc...

So, I was wondering whether any of you have an idea of something to keep her busy, be useful in her future uni applications and career etc. We are really stuck- very difficult to get a job as she doesn't have any experience and needs to be local etc... so alternatives to that please.

I will add she is starting volunteering at the hospital for three hours in a months time...

Thank you all in advance.

Have a look at futurelearn courses. They offer short, free online courses in topics relevant to jobs in areas such as Health and Social Care and for leisure. You have to pay if you want a certificate to record achievement though.
