This programme is for students who have participated in the High Achievers Programme or who have identified a specific profession or discipline they wish to follow.

They meet in small groups with volunteers to explore their chosen profession, developing a clear and realistic understanding of the practice, of possible career paths and some of the routes into the profession or trade. They also explore their own ambitions, goals and motivations, strenghts and weaknesses. They prepare themselves for making their applications to college, university or apprenticeships.

The details of each programme vary with each school and group of students but can involve outside trips to places of work or study and visits from people in their field to share their experience.
