What Next After AVCE?

AVCE leavers

National surveys show that while a majority of the old GNVQ Advanced leavers went on to higher education, about 40% entered employment or training. However, that varied enormously according to subject. Figures for the new AVCEs will not be available until 2003.

As you might guess, most leavers at this level will go into higher education, courses or jobs related to their subject, but again this does vary between subjects..


Find out more about what happens to people who have taken different subjects by talking to careers advisers, course tutors and ex-students.

GNVQ Intermediate and Foundation leavers

A majority of GNVQ Intermediate/Foundation students continue in further education, usually on to the next level of GNVQ in the same subject.

A significant minority go into jobs or training. As GNVQ Foundation and Intermediate courses are equivalent to GCSEs, the sort of job opportunities open would be similar to those open to Year 11 leavers with GCSEs. However, you will leave the GNVQ course older, more mature and have the extra knowledge and skills that come from having taken your GNVQ course.

If you leave school or college before you are 18, you will still be young enough to be guaranteed a place on government-funded training schemes like Modern Apprenticeships and National Traineeships.
