What to expect from a Guidance Interview:
- An interview offers Information, Advice and Guidance, is private, and can be used to discuss future plans in any way.
- Common subjects in guidance interviews are. ‘How can I start to make some plans?’ ‘I’m not sure what jobs I’d be good at’.’ Should I look at A Levels or BTECS?’
- A guidance interview will give ‘time out’ to explore options, look at things objectively and think about the implications of any decision.
- Students are requested to come along with any questions and to talk about the things that may be concerning them.
- The aim is to make the picture clearer and to enable planning for the next steps.
