If you have a few ideas but you are unsure what to do next
Talk to your School, Sixth Form or College Careers Advisor, explore your ideas using on-line resources, find out what you need.
- Do you need a particular degree? If so, what A Level subjects will you need to study?
- Is a particular vocational qualification (eg. NVQ) needed?
It might be worth contacting companies to see if you can carry out some work experience.
Work experience can provide you with a real insight into the world of work and provide you with a taster of what a job might be like, what it involves and whether it might be suitable for you.
Carrying out work experience can also help to support job applications and your UCAS personal statement if you are considering applying to University. It is worth checking when applying for degree courses at university whether the course requires a minimum number of hours of work experience or certain type of work experience.
