What to do Between Studying and Your Training Contract
Training contracts are typically offered a year or two in advance of the actual start date. It’s not unusual to have a large gap of time free between completing your studies and beginning your training contract. It may seem like a long time to wait but it will fly by!
Try not to think of the spare time as a chance to enjoy an extended holiday; the reality is there are a lot of ways you can use the time productively. Here are a few different options for what you can do before finally starting your training contract.
Take 30 seconds to sign up to TLP and you’ll receive free, tailored information for your aspirations and stage straight to your inbox, as well as be the first to know about new, free events – what are you waiting for?
Some training contracts may require you to move to a new area or completely different location. If this is the case, you’ll hugely value having the time to sort out all of the logistics involved in relocating beforehand.
To settle into your new area, it could be worth joining local groups to get involved in the community. This might help you feel less lonely when you start your training. You could even make new friends to spend time with at the weekend.
If you’ve secured a training contract, you’ve no doubt put in countless hours to reach this point. Whilst it can be good to get a job or travel the world in your spare time, it might not be what’s best for you.
Make sure you take some time out to properly relax and celebrate landing a training contract. You deserve it!
