Choosing what to do next
When the Dynamite group did their ‘Big Bang Survey’ a lot of young people told us that when leaving school or college it can be difficult to know what you want to do next. There are lots of different options open to you and it can be difficult to weigh up all of your options.
Some options open to young people leaving school or college include;
- Further Education courses
- Supported internships
- Paid employment
Richard has Autism, initially he found it difficult to get into paid employment but he now owns his own succesful dog treat business.
some people that can be useful to talk to when deciding what to do next are:
- College Tutors
- College Careers advisers
- The National Careers Service
- Other young people
- Family members
- The Dynamite team (via our ‘Ask Us Anything Contact Form)
