What do you want to be when you grow up?
Most adults still don't have an answer for that, so how can we expect students to answer with any certainty? Regardless of whether it's your child or a student in your class, the final years of secondary school can be a stressful and overwhelming time. Students have a vast array of options when it comes to choosing a career path. It can be a struggle to narrow down the options and find the right direction.
Career coaching can help to guide your student through their journey into a fulfilling career. By building on their self-awareness it will serve to highlight their strengths, talents, passions and values to determine which route is appropriate for them. This will help them to find a career they will love, that will provide them with the fulfilment everyone deserves, as well as the financial security that we all need. This could be through university, an apprenticeship or even entering the world of work.
Importance of selecting the right path
Career coaching isn't just about finding the right degree, indeed, a degree isn't necessarily the right career path for everyone. We believe it's about finding the right path for the individual.
The importance of guiding students down a career path that is right for them is now becoming increasingly focused on. Keeping in mind that the average cost of going to university is around £56,910 across the 3 years, with some spanning over 7 years, and costing up to £132,790.
You could help them to avoid potentially wasting time, money and, importantly, avoiding unnecessary stress and pressure, by investing in career coaching now to help guide them onto that right path. For example, depending on the individual, Apprenticeships are a great way to gain a qualification whilst still getting paid, often leading directly into job roles they are ready for and understand fully.
