Now that sounds wonderful. Would suit my boy, who is just coming up to A-levels but really really doesn't fancy the idea of uni and wants to get out there and DO stuff. Serious stuff. He's a smart lad and can do numbers in his head better than anyone I've ever met (unfortunately crap at exams though, but given the exams he has had I can see why - he is too smart for the questions and answers what they actually asked rather than what they thought they had asked).
Of course. There other criteria, but none as important as the degree (and university). We also take on 3 people a year into the non-grad scheme for 18-20 year olds who have left school.
Any chance you could PM me who you work for? I undertake to keep it quiet.
