Plans don’t always work out how we’d like them to. You might realise that the course you’re on isn’t right for you, or you’ve chosen a career that no longer interests you or suits you.

People are more likely to make these kind of decisions during a break from work or study – particularly over the Christmas and New Year period when many people start thinking about, and planning for, the future. If you’re thinking about a change you’re not alone.


If You’re thinking about leaving your course

Whether you’re at college or university, the decisions to leave or change your course isn’t one to be taken lightly, and the first thing you should do is talk to your course or programme leader. Theyll be able to help you to understand your options and talk you through the issues youre having.

If you find yourself unsure of where you want to go in your career, we can help you find an option to suit you.


If you’re thinking about leaving your job

The most important thing to remember is not to rush into anything. If youre in secure employment with a regular income, its wise to continue working whilst exploring other options, rather than leaving work and potentially putting yourself at a disadvantage.

If you’re looking to change your career altogether, our free courses might be able to help you to grow the necessary skills to get a foot in the door in your chosen industry. They can also help to firm up your existing skills to push you further in your current role, if that’s what you want to do.


If you think you might be at risk of redundancy

Sometimes the decision to leave work isn’t in your hands. We know that uncertainty about the future of your job is stressful, that’s why we’re redundancy specialists and are here to help with both the practical and emotional aspects of being made redundant.

Whatever the circumstances surrounding the need to find work or training in 2020, we can help you onto the right path
