So far you have thought about the skills and qualities you have developed as a carer and you have thought about your ideas for the future. You may be at a stage where you’re thinking about taking up or returning to paid employment. Perhaps you have an idea already of what you’d like to do?

This session looks in detail at jobs and careers. Researching jobs within the employment areas that you are interested in will help you plan ahead and make realistic, informed decisions. It can help you find the right path and prevent you having to make too many detours on your journey.
