Does your child have a firm idea of what career they are interested in?

The word 'Yes' is shown on the ground below an arrow and in front of someone's shoe.
The word 'Maybe' is shown on the ground below an arrow and in front of someone's shoes.
The word 'No' is shown on the ground below an arrow and in front of someone's shoe.

Of course plans may change and new interests could change your child’s plans for the future, but it’s great to have an idea what they like to help them choose next steps such as sixth form and further education, apprenticeships and work experience.

Here’s some useful tools to find out more about what career might be right for you.

Here’s our overview of what careers teaching, guidance and activities your child will have.
