What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I concentrated on science subjects in school as that was where my interest was at the time, but to be honest I don't feel that any subjects I took in school have had any great bearing on my job today. I feel that Life Skills are much more important for the work I do today.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I went to school in the UK in the 80ís taking English, Maths, Geography, History and Art and did not go back to education until I was a mature student in 1997.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

It's understandable not to have clear subject choices at a young age. The best advice is to go for what you're good at and to chuck what you don't like. Only vague ambitions at this stage are appropriate. The rest will follow in due course.
