Personal guidance

Career guidance is about raising aspirations, aiming high and avoiding making any assumptions about the limits on a young person’s options. It assists young people to make realistic choices about their education, training and work. It is impartial, and supports the individual to consider what option is best for them. For some young people, university may offer the best route after school. For others, technical routes or apprenticeships may be better. Good career guidance means showing all young people all the options open to them, whichever route they eventually take.
