Choosing what to do after finishing school can be an incredibly daunting task for today’s teens. Application deadlines and the points race, not to mention the pressure of choosing the ‘right’ course can leave the teens of today feeling overwhelmed with the task at hand. Although schools provide some support, it is quite often left to the teen to decide and navigate the process themselves.
