Planning a better future

What you have learned in this block

  • In Block 2 you’ve had the chance to look further into the work that interests you and to consider how various areas and options might align with your values and your current circumstances.
  • You may well find that instead of having fewer questions, you now have more. This is to be expected when you start exploring your future options, so see this as a positive step in your career planning process.

In Block 3 you’ll learn how to take decisions, set realistic goals and receive some practical advice and guidance on how to apply for jobs and succeed at interviews.
