Careers advice, information and guidance at school or college
With so many choices on offer about what (and where) you study at key stage 4, your choices at 16, and your decisions at 18 and beyond it is easy to worry that you won’t make the right decisions. Everyone needs a bit of help with decision-making. Make sure you get all the help and support you need – your learning, training and career choices are too important to leave to chance!
Make the most of:
- Careers lessons.
- Information events; options events, careers fairs, university events etc.
- Careers information in books or online.
- Information from your subject teachers and tutors.
- Employers who visit your school or college.
Your school or college must provide you with access to impartial, independent careers guidance if you need it, to help you to choose wisely. A careers adviser can talk to you about how to make the best decisions for you, and how your choices might affect your future plans.
If you want to speak to someone outside school, you can get confidential and practical help through the National Careers Service’s helpline on 0800 100 900. For more ways to contact the National Careers Service see: https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk/contact-us/home
