Career Selection for Young People

Career choice is one of the most important decisions in anyone’s life, and yet countless young people enter careers which later prove to be wholly unsuitable.

Even today most young people have no way to find out if a particular career would really suit them. Decisions that are central to future happiness and success are therefore very often being taken in the dark.

Career Callings transforms the knowledge available to every young person, to enable the right choices to be made. Participants are guided through a series of enjoyable and imaginative exercises to identify the career path that will suit their abilities and interests. Steps include a series of tests to identify abilities, aptitudes, strengths, values and interests which are essential elements in making a successful career selection:

* Visualising an ideal work day
* Identifying personal values that will form the foundation of a successful career
* Identifying individual talents, strengths and accomplishments
* Defining worthwhile and appropriate ambitions
* Assessing levels of interest and ability for different career options
* Clarifying a path for the next 10 years
* Devising a plan of action

The results are brought together in a number of steps to identify career options that will be genuinely satisfying, inspiring and rewarding.

Young people who do not know what career to choose will find out what options they are likely to find satisfying, and how to move forward. Others who have already made a career or study choice will gain added confidence that they are on the right track.

The programme complements the computerised assessments that are available in some schools, going into much greater depth, helping to explore options that may not have been considered before and providing confidence that a career choice will be truly fulfilling.

Career Callings is available for young people as a short course or personal coaching from £350. The course is also available for delivery in schools, where reduced prices are available for large groups.

Career coaching is also available on a one-to-one basis by telephone, where specific questions are to be addressed or where attendance at a course location is impracticable.
