1. Get advice
Gone are the days where ‘chatting’ is looked down on. Whilst the ultimate decision is yours, it’s good to get as much advice as possible, so I’d recommend speaking to some experts. Reach out to your local job centre, training companies or school career advisor. It’s free to talk to all of them and they can provide you with lots of information. Here at Realise, we have dedicated Information, Advice and Guidance Advisors who are specially trained to support school leavers. They are a friendly bunch and really do know their stuff when it comes to planning for the future.
