Don't panic

Sharon Pritchard Student Services Manager at SWC said: “Deciding on the next step after leaving school or returning to education can be a daunting and anxious time and young people and parents don’t always know what career courses or learning opportunities are available to them. Some people may have performed under their expectations, while others may be unsure about which route to take. The important thing is not to panic. Our team of expert careers advisors can talk young people through their individual situations, enabling them to see for themselves what options are available to them."
