With exam results day fast approaching, you may be feeling a little nervous about the next step in your journey.
You’ve completed your studies so far, and you’re maybe even getting ready to leave school and going in a separate direction from the rest of your class group.
All of this can make it feel like the end of a journey. But this isn’t the case – your journey towards your dream career is only just beginning!
As you get ready to take your next step, whether that means continuing to study, perhaps towards a degree, or entering vocational training or an apprenticeship, it is important to continue to develop your knowledge and skills.
If you’re not sure what you’re going to do next or your plans change after you get your results, don’t panic! There are loads of options open to you.
One of the best things you can do is speak to people who can help.
Fife College’s Clearing Day Events are a great place to speak to staff who know all about the industry you’d like to work in.
You’ll also be able to get information about guidance, funding, careers, and support available while studying at the college, as well as apply for courses.
Clearing Events are running from 10am-3pm on Wednesday, August 8, at the college’s campuses in Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes. You can get full information on the college’s website.
You can also call their dedicated Clearing helpline on 0344 248 0125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options.
Not only will studying at college give you the ideal base to progress to university, with many HN courses allowing you to start at uni in second or third year, but you’ll also be able to take your studies one year at a time without the pressure of a four year block.
And, at the end of each year, you’ll come away with a recognised and respected qualification that will enable you to enter employment if the opportunity comes up.
Student Julia Callaghan is glad that she chose to study at Fife College.
She said: “It’s been great to study locally at the college. I found the National Certificate: Child, Health and Social Care SCQF Level 5 course very interesting. My favourite part was the unit on the human body.
“I also loved having the opportunity to meet all of the new friends I made through the course.
“I’ve no doubt that the course helped to prepare me for my next step.”
