Careers and Future Pathways

The decisions learners make now will have a significant impact on their lives, not just their further education and work but also their health, relationships and financial situation. It is an investment in their future.

The TASC course  Career and Life Planning" provides opportunities for learners to develop self-awareness, explore future opportunities and develop and use decision making skills to match their learning to their future needs. These will in turn enable learners to make informed career decisions and respond to changing circumstances now and into the future.
