Choose the right school subjects and career for you
It can be challenging, overwhelming and outright worrying for students choosing which subjects to take at college.
Every student deserves to have the confidence and peace of mind that their subject choices will be best for them, to be in that place of no doubt.
Many students find themselves regretting previous years subject choices then facing delays or insurmountable obstacles in getting to the qualification that they want or need. They end up questioning why they selected one subject over another in earlier years. If they had only known! Hindsight, but it doesn’t help now they find themselves faced with extra study. The rewards are great if you get it right and painful if you get it wrong, so make sure you get the information to make the right choice the first time.
It’s not right or fair that we place our students in this impossible situation by asking them to make subject choices on what they like, likes change and very often through our careers.

The CareerSure process is built upon the foundation of Aptitudes - your natural abilities to complete certain tasks. These have been shown over the past 100 years to be one of the most reliable measurements of job success and satisfaction. In fact, 70% of fortune 500 companies use Aptitude assessment as part of their pre-recruitment process because they know if a candidate's aptitudes fit with the position, their level of success and engagement will be so much higher.
Aptitudes stabilise at around 15 years of age and remain constant throughout our entire life. They are not a measure of intelligence, interest or personality - they uncover how your brain works and performs at various tasks. It is not a pass/fail & everyone has aptitudes and the aptitudes required for different roles vary. Someone who is a world class brain surgeon will have a different set of aptitudes to a marine biologist.
Often students simply select subjects they like influenced by teachers, friends, social media, films and television, however all of these things all make some careers look exciting and others dull and boring, students have little or no experience of these careers. None of these consider what fits, about a flawed as buying cloths without knowing size, or buying glasses without knowing the strength needed. Aptitudes provide that guidance towards what you will enjoy and excel at, not only now but for the rest of your working life.
What is it worth to you to have the confidence and assurance that you have selected the right subjects for your future?
I cannot recommend CareerSure enough, it should be MANDATORY in schools and universities!
