Coaching is about helping you find ways to develop and achieve your potential.
Think about it like a sports coach. They identify the skills each player has and how they can be used to help the team. They work with players to help them improve and become more confident. As each player gets better, the team is more likely to win.
A careers adviser will work with you to develop your career management skills, this could be in school or in a careers centre. They’ll help you think about who you are, what you’re good at and what you want to achieve. Then, you’ll decide how you’re going to do it and make a plan to keep you on track.
You can get support at different times throughout your career. You might be unsure of where to look for your first job out of school – or even know what you want to do when you leave. Or you might have been in the workplace for many years, but need a little help to make a career change. No matter what your circumstance, coaching can help you build the confidence you need to get the career you want.
