2. Your school or college

It’s always worth talking to your teacher, tutor or someone in student services about how you are feeling.

They may be able to provide a solution.

Schools and colleges want you to succeed so it makes sense to talk to them.

Talk to your school or college if:

  • You want to change your course
  • You are finding the course work too difficult
  • You have been asked to leave your course but would like to stay

TIP: If you are not sure what to say, try noting down or recording the questions you have, and how you are feeling, so you go prepared and don’t forget anything.

If you are still worried about talking to your school or college, contact us at Careers Wales for help.
