It’s generally parents who find my site – they want to help their teenage children make effective career decisions. For some this will be a university education, but what course, what university, and what about after graduation?

But not all young people want, or need a university education and for many vocational training or getting a job is the right choice for them.

Too many young people opt for university without any in-depth thought on why. Too often this leads on to a wasted opportunity, too late they realise it was the wrong degree for the career path they now want to follow. Others drop out as emotionally not ready, or not getting sufficient support to help with the transition from school.

Read on for suggestions on how we can help.  Parents are often reassured that career options are considered in a structured way with an independent chartered psychologist who is noted as a caring and inspiring expert.

The work we do can help young people to choose:

  • A levels or other post 16 study
  • Degree subject
  • Specialism (e.g. for doctors and scientists)
  • Career
  1. Teenagers
  2. Pre University
  3. University Students

So what will help?

Taking the Highlands Ability Battery will help to identify natural talents and abilities. It’s an objective assessment of how you perform against 19 different work samples.  This means choices can be made on what to study and how to study – the assessment identifies how best you learn – through reading, listening, active involvement and whether seeing the information in chart or diagrammatic form helps or hinders. It also identifies how you best solve problems, how quick you are to come up with new ideas, whether strengths are in science or literature and much more.

Understanding natural abilities using the Highlands Ability Battery can help choose between different courses, in the knowledge this is based on levels of natural talent, not just hard work!

The assessment takes just over 3 hours and is taken from a home computer. It doesn’t have to be taken all at once, but can be broken down into a number of sessions. The feedback session takes about 90 minutes (this can be done face to face or via the phone) and you also get a full colour 29 page report, an e-book on learning strategies, one page summary, suggested career options and a recording of the discussion.

Work with Denise to understand more about who you are, where your interest lay, what motivates you, strengths and weaknesses and to consider different options.

Making choices for 18+ Pre University Programme

It now costs thousands of pounds to go to University, and students leave with a significant debt. It’s important that this money isn’t wasted.

Make sure that your degree will be a step towards your future. If you are uncertain better to wait and decide what you want to do and why, rather than rush to university.

Too many young people opt for university without any in-depth thought on why. Too often this leads on to a wasted opportunity, too late they realise it was the wrong degree for the career path they now want to follow. Others drop out as emotionally not ready, or not getting sufficient support to help with the transition from school.

After A levels, BTEC or similar, there are choices between starting full time work or study. A choice to go to university means decisions between courses, location and whether to take a year out or not.

I’ve met too many people who made the wrong choice. Too many graduates wishing they had chosen a different degree, or waited before going to university.

On some degree courses (law, medicine etc.) there is a need to specialise, we can review and discuss which options are likely to be most suitable, based on effective assessments and coaching.

A typical pre university programme is to take 3 assessments – Highlands Ability Battery, MBTI Step 1 and the Strong Interest Inventory. These are taken in advance of meeting up, we then meet for a ½ day session to discuss the results and to provide suggestions for careers, with guidance on how to find out more. There is an option to include follow up coaching sessions to review the research and confirm decisions.

Ongoing mentoring is an option for your time at university – meeting up (phone or in person) 2 or 3 times a year to review progress – from study techniques (Denise spent 3 years working as a study skills tutor) to developing relevant experiences to add to your CV (work experience, volunteering, other activities).

Client Comments

“It was difficult for myself as a parent to be able to confidently advise and guide my daughter in her post A level education. She was a good all rounder and had absolutely no idea what she wanted to do. It was such a relief to discover Denise who is such a knowledgeable and caring career expert. I am now confident that Rebecca is moving in the right direction.”

Parent

“It is a journey of discovery; you make many fascinating realisations about yourself along the way. The knowledge you acquire will benefit you for the rest of your life. As for me I have found the programme invaluable in making decisions about my future degree course at university.”

Carol Crowther, Student

Tom had absolutely no idea what to do at University. He was bright and definitely wanted to take a degree, but wasn’t sure what subject. The student programme showed he had excellent abilities in 2D and 3D interpretation, which suggests roles such as engineer, design and architecture. He is also highly outgoing and sociable, needing a role with a high level of interaction with others. He took this programme just before he chose his A levels to make sure he didn’t drop a subject that would be required in his chosen degree. To be certain he is making the right choice he is undertaking some structured work experience in his school holidays to help make a final choice.

Rebecca Crowther, Parent

Hilary was the youngest of 3 and the first child to think about a graduate career. Her grandmother wanted to support Hilary in making the right decision and paid for this programme. It led from an initial decision to take media studies to structured work placements over summer vacations prior to University, based on the results of the assessments. Hilary will be happiest where she can work with others in a structured environment and gain an area of expertise. Her decision to become a Radiologist matched in with her personality and abilities.
