Im not sure

So basically I was gonna be a dog groomer when I was older and the plan was for me to do an online course and we would convert the extension into a dog grooming facility but now im not so sure if I want to.

There's a college called T-side (not its actual name) I was ment to be doing animal care there this year but then I failed my gcses so had to go to the MH school that im at now.

At T-side they do a photography and graphic design course and I'm thinking of doing that but I'm also not sure

    Maybe you could speak with some one who does dog grooming and see what they enjoy and don’t enjoy about it. I think a mod said they did dog grooming. I think it was Beth or Emma but I’m not sure because it was ages ago 😂 they might get confused if you ask 😂or you could ask around for a week work experience maybe to see if you like it.

    I think it’s normal to not know what you want to do and it’s good that you have options. If you do a course and don’t like it can you swap to another?

    @Rose113 It is super exciting that you're sharing your thoughts about future plans! It sounds like you've been considering a few different paths – that's totally normal (both paths sound like a lot of fun which is a bonus!)

    So, I did a quick Google search about Dog Grooming pathways. It looks like Pets at Home offer some really cool training opportunities for colleagues who are interested in animal care.. Take a look at this link- https://www.petsathomejobs.com/early-careers.

    On the other hand, the photography and graphic design course at T-side sounds interesting too! It's great that you have options to explore.

    Honestly, there's no rush to decide right now. Maybe we could chat about your interests a bit more? It might help you see which path feels more exciting to you!

    @ella yeah, the thing is at T-side I won't know anyone and my anxiety with be bad. Mum said we can go have a look around so I might do that.

    I love animals but there's a down fall, im terrified of big dogs, they freak me out.

    I do photography when I go on holiday and people have said I should do it, I wanted to do photography for gcse but they cancelled the class
