Where does it lead?
Having a qualification in law is very valued. Students can choose to progress on to Higher Education, and many of Cadbury’s students have gone onto study Law either by itself or combined with another subject at Birmingham University, Bristol, Nottingham Trent, Manchester and Birmingham City University.
