  1. Speak to those around you
  2. Your form tutors, teachers, and mentors know you well and have specific subject knowledge
  3. Book a careers interview with your career’s adviser, even if you don’t know what you want to do or know where to start, they will give you the tools to make a start
  4. Speak to your family, they also know you well, older siblings will have gone through this process and can support you with where to look
  5. Research, use online careers portals and careers platforms, find out how to apply to other places, you can apply to more than one place and decide later where you would like to attend.
  6. Look at FE websites, go to open evenings, taster sessions give you an insight to that subject. The more information and research you do the more equipped you are in making a great decision
