At NEC, we’re often asked for advice about the best courses to choose for particular careers. That’s why we’ve published a series of free practical guides covering the careers most popular with our students.

Each guide looks at the reasons for choosing a particular career area, the different routes into the profession, and the qualifications, qualities and skills you need to succeed.

The guides also include helpful links to further information, for example on applying to university or courses available from NEC to help plug any qualification gaps you may have; including essential GCSEs in English and Maths.
