PHILIPSBURG – It can be a challenge at a young age to choose a career or study to pursue after completing secondary school because students are often undecided between many choices or have no idea what they would like to pursue.
The Student Support Services Division (SSSD) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Affairs realizes the challenge and is therefore organizing a free workshop entitled, “How to Choose a Career or Study.”
The workshop will be held on August 27, 2015 from 5:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. at the SSSD office.
Students in the last two years of secondary school and those who recently completed school are invited to the workshop. This workshop will address choosing a career path, overcoming being undecided about a study at a college/university, and getting started on exploring career options. In addition, students will be given practical steps that can be taken to explore career options.
“By attending this workshop, students will explore what their interest may be and how their interests, along with other factors, could tie into choosing a study or career. Students will also receive information on exploring careers,” say SSSD officials.
Seating is limited, therefore, students are encouraged to contact SSSD to reserve a seat. The office is located in the Amigo Building which is across from the Police Station and next to the Windward Islands Bank (WIB) in Philipsburg.
Students are encouraged to be on time and to bring their own writing materials to the workshops. For more information and to register, please contact the Student Support Services Division at 543-1235.
