Congratulations to all the students who have received their GCSE results! This is a significant milestone in your academic journey and marks the end of one chapter whilst opening the doors to new opportunities. 

However, not all of you may have achieved the results you were hoping for, and it's natural to feel disappointed or uncertain about your next steps. 

Let's take a look at how Workpays can help you with what to do next…

Study Programme

For students who may not have achieved the GCSE Results they were hoping for, our Study Programme based in Redditch could be a great choice. Our Study Programmes are designed to meet your individual learning needs and prepare you for higher learning, training, or employment within either Health and Care or Building and Construction. These programmes typically include a mix of training and functional skills development. By participating in our Study Programme, you can identify your strengths, and gain the necessary skills to boost your employability. If this sounds like your next step, get in touch! 


If traditional academic routes are not what you're looking for, apprenticeships can be an excellent alternative. Apprenticeships offer a unique combination of on-the-job training and classroom learning, allowing you to gain valuable skills and experience whilst earning a wage. Whether you're interested in a technical trade, creative field, or professional sector, there are apprenticeships available in various industries. Many employers also offer the possibility of progression within the company, meaning apprenticeships are a great choice for securing a long-term career!
