Joe finds out what people do when they leave school

Thousands of teenagers across the country are getting their A-Level exam results.

Many of them will be hoping to have good enough grades to get them a place at university, before finding work.

But there are other ways of getting a job. An apprenticeship is when someone trains you up- whilst you do the job.

It might be a long way off but we asked if any of you have plans and dreams for when you leave school.
