These 11 top jobs don't require a degree - and pay up to £100,000
Going to university isn't for everyone and it's not the only route towards landing your dream job.

Now three in four UK businesses believe more young people will choose earn-as-you-learn routes in the next five years. Here are 11 of the top jobs you can do without a degree and what they pay.
