I have a 16 year old son who, once GCSEs are out of the way next summer, will have a superlong summer (11 weeks). He’s a smart cookie and looking to go off to university a couple of years later.
It’s not very often in life you get free time like this and so was looking for ideas on what he might want to study or do during that period that would set him up for earning. He’s adamant he doesn’t want to do coding so I’m happy to rule that out. He got a lot of benefit from a touch typing course a couple of years ago but was looking for something fun/educational that might increase his earning power before he goes to Uni and then during Uni.
Initial thought was something like a Barista course as it’s skilled and can get you a job in most major cities if you’re travelling etc.
Does anyone have any other ideas on what might be a good fit? There’s no pressure from me for him to do it but he’s quite keen do find something as the summer will be a bit long otherwise.
