Get hands on with your career

Let us help get you on the right path

Deciding on what you might like to do in the future can seem overwhelming. There are so many different jobs out there. So where do you start?

  • Try not to get stressed about your future, even if you’re not sure what you want to do
  • Talk to people around you.  Teachers, careers advisers, people at home and friends all have information and suggestions for you
  • Research to help you find out more about the world of work
  • Local and regional labour market information can help you to explore the availability of careers and jobs and future development areas

Absolutely no idea what career to go into?

We can help you. Get in touch and we'll talk you through your options.

Keep your options open when choosing subjects and moving onto next steps if you’re unsure what you want to do.

Think about what you love and what you’re good at.  There will be a career where you can use those skills.  You might have a chance to do something you love as a smaller part of another career that you hadn’t realised.

Think about the subjects and things that you don’t like too.  You don’t want to go into a career doing something you really don’t like.

Transferable skills are important.  These are skills you have that can be used in lots of different places.  Think about playing football – you’re using teamwork, communication skills, even timekeeping to get to the match on time.  When you’re playing football you’re not working, but showing skills an employer will like!

What help and support is out there:

  • Every school/college or sixth form has a careers adviser.  It’s a good idea to arrange an appointment with them to look at your options.
  • If you are not in education or training then we can help you – contact us by email [link]
  • Warrington LIFE can help you to access the KUDOS site. KUDOS is a career development program that helps you to explore jobs and what you need to get into them.

Talk to your careers adviser, explore your ideas using online resources, find out what you need.

  • Do you need a particular qualification?  What do you need first to study that course?  Where can you study it?
  • Is a particular vocational qualification (NVQ, BTEC) needed?  Can you get it at a local college or do you need to travel further away?
