Many students will be anxiously waiting for their A-Level results – which this year’s teachers have been asked to grade students based on a combination of mock exams and coursework – but it is not necessarily an A, B or C that will help to build a career.

In fact, 56% of Brits do not think a degree is worth the investment, while 57% of those aged 16 – 24 believe that spending three or more years learning on the job is more valuable than studying for a university degree.

Our love of TV shows, such as The Apprentice and Dragon’s Den, have increased the popularity of the entrepreneur and last year hundreds of thousands of new businesses were launched in the UK as the pandemic drove entrepreneurial spirit.

Aston spoke to 2019 Apprentice winner Carina Lepore and Rob Alder, head of business development at AAT.
