The Careers Advice Zone Team has been talking to all students on Level 1 & 2 courses about progression. Download the ‘Future Me’ booklet which highlights the options available to them to consider. The booklet was offered to all students in these groups during tutorial time. It also includes lots of useful websites which will be useful when they are thinking about their next steps.
