Ask students to discuss what their choices of career might be after they leave school. They could then research what vocational training schemes exist for those jobs. Ask the students to also consider the benefits of further and higher education and the possibility of studying for academic and vocational qualifications. Students could explore the pros and cons of training schemes further by creating a simple table listing all the advantages and disadvantages that they can think of.
