How to Research  


– What career path do I want to follow?
– Do I need a degree or can I undertake a work based route e.g. apprenticeship?
– What skills are employers/universities looking for?
– Work Experience – carry out relevant work experience to see if the career is right for you – “try before you buy!”

All these questions (and many more!) can be answered if you carry out thorough research!
