WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER YEAR 11?

Are you a school leaver? You may have had a careers interview at school and taken part in a lot of careers-related activities, but you still might be confused about your next steps. Many of your friends might know what they want to do next, which can make you feel even more unsure. These feelings are completely normal, and thousands of young people feel the same as you right now. If you need some help on what career path you should take, the school leaver courses we offer or the difference between sixth form and college, we’ve got the information you need to point you in the right direction.
