What's your career worth? Progression Event 2018

By this we mean how much do you want to earn after college?

With a level two qualification you'll potentially earn around £15,000* per year.

Did you know, on average you'll earn 22%* more with level three qualifications compared to those with level two qualifications?

Over a 35 year career that equates to an extra £115,500 extra in your salary.

That could buy your first home, an Audi R8 or 1150 pairs of Nike Air Max.
