  • Your current career ideas or help to generate some career ideas if you are not sure
  • Routes into your chosen career – sixth form, college, training, apprenticeships, higher education, etc.
  • We will give you accurate and up-to-date information about your career choice
  • Advice on where you can carry out further research.
  • Labour Market Information – this is about were the jobs are and were they are likely to be in the future
  • Employability Skills – things like where to look for jobs, how to put a CV together and interview skills
  • After the interview we will give you an action plan about your next steps
