In Sessions 1–3 you’ve looked at where you are now and how you got there. In this session you’ll think about where you want to be in the future.

You may be thinking of a complete career change, or about study for personal development – perhaps leading to more responsibility in your current role. Perhaps you are thinking about studying a particular subject that interests you, with no career goal in mind at the moment, but wonder where this might lead you?

Researching the role or career areas that you are interested in will help you with your future plans, ensuring that you make a realistic, informed decision, and don’t end up on what you feel is the wrong path, or taking too many wrong turns!
