Career planning during secondary education can help with your study decisions and guide your subject choices for A’ Levels, University or Apprenticeships. It can create a motivational focus: you know what you are working towards and why. It helps you target your extra-curricular activities to prepare for your future and create a compelling account of your motivation and suitability for university and employment applications.
As a graduate or leaving secondary education, identifying the right career opportunity often means you can focus your search on the those you know will fulfil you. It gives you the confidence to clearly articulate your suitability and motivation for a role. It creates consistency for your CV and cover letters in knowing the unique value you offer.
