An informative guide which aims to aid the decision-making process at various critical points in a young person's career. It surveys the choices which fifth-formers need to make about their future education and training, and outlines the opportunities available to them. Significant events of the last decade are discussed, up to and including the 1988 Education Reform Act, as well as the question of equal opportunities, with particular reference to those for young women, ethnic minority groups and those with special educational needs.
