Sixteen Plus Choice. A Guide to the Decisions Facing the Sixteen-Year Old.
March, Peter; Smith, Michael
A part of The Careers Research and Advisory Centre Choice Series, this book is written for sixteen year-old or sixteen plus students in England faced with the decision of staying at school and entering sixth form (non-compulsory grades for study for one, two, or three years beyond sixteen), continuing studies at a college of further education, or leaving school and getting a job. A section is devoted to the exploration of each of these alternative routes. The section on the sixth form covers 0-level or CSE examinations (Certificate of Secondary Education), courses of study, and selection of subjects. The college section includes coverage of college titles, qualifications, range of further education courses, levels of courses, national diplomas and certificates, examinations and examining bodies, and college applications. Getting a job is discussed in terms of career possibilities as related to enjoyable and successful school subjects while time to begin a job is assessed according to attitudes, achievements, opportunities available, limiting restrictions and financial situation. Approximately 40 pages are devoted to appendixes and tables indicating the wide range of careers after A-level subjects (college preparatory), degree subjects available, and a careers index outlining entry to a large number of careers.
