• Someone available to you in school to help you to make informed decisions about your next step after Year 11 and beyond.
  • We will never tell you what to do.  It is our role, in partnership with the school, to ensure you all have a clear understanding of the options available to you after Year 11.  (Time goes quickly!).
  • It is then up to you to make an informed decision about what you want to do next.
  • Not all of you will automatically receive a one to one Careers Guidance appointment.  However, if you think you need an appointment, you can ask for one.  There is other support in school…

What is an informed decision?

  • An informed decision can be said to have been made based upon a clear appreciation and understanding of the FACTS, IMPLICATIONS and   FUTURE CONSEQUENCES of an action.
  • A decision that is based on fact/knowledge of a subject or situation.
  • We appreciate in school that it is our responsibility to provide you with access to the right information so informed choices can be made, BUT you all have a responsibility too…

Realistic Aspirations….

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY THIS?

Your Responsibilities

  • It could be that the ideal job role for you, is one you haven’t heard of yet
