Choosing My First Job
Work is something that everyone should be encouraged to aim for when they leave school or college. For Zac, Chelsea and Amy it is just a matter of finding the job and route that fits them best. Zac's not sure that work is for him, and his teacher has to think creatively to help him try out a job that matches his interests perfectly. For Chelsea, a period of work experience and trying out different tasks helps to identify the right job. Amy does a college course and travel training alongside her work placement to get all the experience and qualifications she needs for the career she wants. Choosing My First Job will help young people understand that work is for everyone, that finding the right job feels brilliant and there are lots of different ways of getting there.
This book is part of a mini series about moving towards work.
