Help with choosing your post 16 options



A good place to start planning your post 16 options is to think of these three questions.

  1. Where am I now? (What qualifications, skills, interests, etc. do I have?)
  2. Where do I want to get to? (What would I like to be doing in 5 years time – job, house, children, etc.?)
  3. How will I get there? (What course or training is likely to get you where you want to go?)

Of coure, at 16, young people don't necessarily know the answer to all these questions, but now is the time to start exploring information about careers, jobs, courses, etc.

If you really aren't sure about what you want to do in the future then 'stay broad', which means do a range of subjects, so that you can decide later!
