DD(15) seen her careers advisor yesterday but she is still unsure what routes to take for next year, she wants to stay on to do some A levels but also wants to join the army...I am having a chat with her later to discuss her options.. careers advisor suggests she starts putting her name down for courses.(geez they grow up fast and I am slightly feeling much older lol)

any tips or advice would be appreciated

thanks

If she is keen on joining the military is she already attending the local Cadets?

my son was obsessed with going into the army for year 8. wanted to be an architect too. went to a careers talk and spoke with army careers and they put him in touch with WELBECK a defence sixth form school.

It was an amazing experience - he absolutely loved it! he is now being sponsored through University by the MOD.
