What’s Next? is a booklet that gives Gloucestershire students information and advice about choosing GCSE options, post-16 study, the world of work, and preparing themselves for adulthood.
Designed with the help of students, it takes young people through the choices they have and suggests lots of resources where they can explore these options for themselves. It encourages students to think about what subjects they enjoy, what they're good at and what they might want to do after school.
Students have to stay in a form of education or training until their 18th birthday, but this doesn't have to be at school. What's Next? outlines all the options available, including apprenticeships, traineeships or part-time training whilst working, and shows there is more than one route to success.
