Choosing your courses

Deciding your future can be a really frightening experience. Therefore, it is crucial that you access as much help and support as possible to ensure that the decision you make is well informed.

In years gone by, it would have been a much more straightforward decision, however, in the digital world that we now live in, the careers that you may end up following will not yet exist. In fact, most of the job vacancies that exist today, did not exist 5 years ago. It is, therefore, important to make sure that you access every possible source of support available to help you decide which path is right for you.
