Preparing for Employment

Young people face lots of choice about their future careers. Many will become employed in jobs which do not yet exist and others will adjust to portfolio careers, changing jobs and career direction throughout their working lives.

Making the decision on what to do when they leave education is a daunting one and for which they will require a great deal of support.

Such support comes through the careers programme in their school/college at the core of which is personal career guidance.
