Choosing what to do after Year 11 is a big decision - you will decide the subjects you’re going to study and will need to think about how these will affect your future in education, employment and training.
Things to think about:
- What are you good at and enjoy doing?
- Do you have favourite subjects?
- What are your strengths?
- If you have a career in mind, does it need specific qualifications or training?
Thinking about these things will help you when it comes to decide what to do next.
