And just like that, spring has sprung! While we might still be wearing our winter woollies (who doesn’t love a chunky knit?), the new season is definitely in the air, filled with the anticipation of fresh beginnings, a little bit of warmth and Easter eggs. Oh, the Easter eggs…
When we’ve not been craving chocolate over the last few months, we’ve been mega busy putting together the latest issue of Source. And what a goodie it is.

In our careers section at the front of the mag, prepare to inspired! For spring, we caught up with two incredibly interesting folk to find out more about their jobs – we’ve got a spy on page 22 and a puppeteer on page 18! Elsewhere, we’ve been looking at cool careers in STEM, what you can do to boost your application and we’ve got the lowdown on careers that involve worldwide travel. This issue also boasts our brilliant apprenticeship guide, with all the info you need to get your head around Modern Apprenticeships and the advantages they can bring. Two young Scots have shared their experiences too. With exams on the horizon, we’ve got some top study tips from Scots students, a guide to handling all that study season stress and an expert fills us in on the importance of sleep – ditch your late night Netflix habit in favour of some shut-eye, guys! You’ll thank us for it.

Our new ‘top of the shops’ section rounds up everything we’ve got our eye on from the high street this season, we’ve got some top celeb interviews AND some ace giveaways on page 52 too. So what are you waiting for? Get stuck in! I really hope you enjoy the magazine – and that it doesn't distract you from your studying too much. Good luck with those exams!
