Sometimes deciding what to do in the future seems such a big thing, it is easier if you break it down into smaller steps...
Firstly, work out what you are good at, your skills, ability, qualities, the way you learn best and what is important to you - your values, your ideal lifestyle and what you want to achieve.
Then, look at what is available, jobs, courses, apprenticeships - there are lots of choices but also help and support.
Look at Future Jobs to find information about the industries and workforce in Hertfordshire, the types of jobs available, what employers look for and what might happen in the future.
Look at the Careers section for help with finding more about careers you might be interested in.
