Not Right But Suitable Decision!

Not right but suitable:

  • Subjects
  • Degree
  • Occupation
  • Career

Aims of the Workshop:

This workshop is similar to, but more comprehensive than the TurQuest 1 workshop as it considers the internal and external factors influencing the career decision. It will be most beneficial for students who have sufficient time and can be more flexible in their high school or IB subject selection. The 300 question TurQuest Inventory provides students with detailed information about the career areas/occupations in line with their interests. In light of this information, they make informed choices about their high-school subjects and/or university degrees. They research different sectors and sector values. They assess their personal suitability of career areas by completing mini self check questionnaires. Accordingly, they make a career action plan. Students consider career planning as a process, and reflect on their unique definitions of success, happiness, life, and career values.

Workshop Outcomes: 

  • They work on the internal factors such as instincts, needs, emotions, beliefs and values that unconsciously affect students’ decisions. Students also start to understand the reasons behind their behaviours and things they do or don’t.
  • They list the career areas, occupations, and university degrees in line with their interests provided in the TurQuest inventory.
  • Based on the suggestions in the report, students select their course or IB subjects if they have not already been selected.
  • They learn their aptitudes, areas to improve and which aptitudes are required in different occupations through Aptitude Inventory.
  • They realise their interest that they have not been aware of and match them with careers/occupations.
  • Through TurQuest, students learn that interest in a certain occupation is not sufficient for happiness, but they also need to be interested in the supporting areas. For instance, interest in fashion design may be 100% but lower interest in the supporting areas such as information technologies or retail/buying/selling can decrease the overall match to fashion design to 50%. Knowing this which planning the career is vital to prevent the disappointment in the long run and making the required preparations.
  • Students gain knowledge about the sectors, organisational structures (manager, expert, administrative staff etc.) and sectoral values.
  • They evaluate different options such as minor, major etc. From a multidisciplinary perspective and make short-medium-and long-term action plans.
  • They clarify the topics to research and get consultation from others.
  • They learn the occupations which intersect different career areas (For instance, biomedical engineering which combines medicine and engineering).
  • They instantly access the TurQuest report and matching career areas via the app.


  • Participants receive CAPS Career and Occupation Choice participation document after completion of the workshop.
  • Year 12 students who prefer may attend the half-day workshop.
  • Parents can organise follow-up sessions and additional services in order to discuss the prominent points highlighted in the report.
