With many students getting ready to start their GCSE’s and A Levels this summer, they will soon need to be considering what they are going to do afterwards. It may be that they are going on to further education and know what grades they need to get or possibly that they have decided they want to work. The recent laws state that all under 16 to 18-year-olds must stay in full-time education, for example at a college, start an apprenticeship or traineeship or spend 20 hours or more a week working or volunteering, while in part-time education or training.

To find out what career may be suitable for you, you could try taking one of the personality quizzes such as the one on the UCAS website. This will ask you a series of questions and based on the answers you have provided, it will tell you a bit more about your personality and what jobs may be suited to you.

You have to be able to speak to a careers advisor at school or if not you may be able to contact the nation careers advise service to find out what options you have available to you and what may be a good career path for you to choose.
