Looking at 'where to' after training

As you work through your studies and training, thinking about and planning for those next steps is a good idea.

There will be options - so making an action plan will keep you on track.

Thinking about the transition from study and training to employment

  • Talk to people who know you about the opportunities your training has given you.

  • Gather ideas about future work options and workplaces, and build your networks.
