Step 2....Your Future Career

Who is this for?

If you’re 16-18 and have decided that A levels or your current college course aren’t right for you... don’t wait until September 2021 to get started again!

If you’re over 18, it’s never too late to stop learning! If you’re looking to get back into the workplace, to develop your skills to take the next step up the career ladder, or are thinking about a change in career entirely, Step 2 can help you decide on what comes next.
