Once our 3 kids left primary school, my wife went to Uni to gain a degree in Adult Nursing, and currently works in NHS.
My eldest son gained a Masters in Computer programming but then joined my job.
My daughter left 6th year with 5 highers but took a job in a fraud prevention company on minimum wage, she then bought a car on the never never so is stuck there, however she has just passed stage 2 of the application process for my job.
My youngest has just left school and is enrolled in a Law degree, but his Uni is not classed as a "good" one so not sure what'll happen when he graduates. In fairness to him, his ambition is to join the RAF and intends to do that once he graduates.
I never went to Uni, and have worked all my days....some good times, some not so
