Career Options

Thinking about your future career may seem a long way down the road. It isn’t a decision that needs to be made now and stuck to. You may have an idea right now of what you enjoy and what career you would like to pursue, or you may not have discovered that yet.

People might tell you that whatever you choose to do now will have a big impact on your future. It is important to remember that no decision you make is final. There is time to find out what you enjoy and where that might lead you.    

What Next? 

Try to get as much information as possible before you make a decision.  Talk to the teachers of the subjects you enjoy and discuss what opportunities there might be for you after education.  That could be further study, apprenticeships, or your first job.  Use the information below to start thinking about options.  Then talk to an adult you trust.
