Not Right But Suitable Decision!

Not the ‘correct’ but suitable:

  •         Subjects
  •         Degree
  •         Occupation
  •         Career

Aims of the Workshop:

This workshop aims to guide Year 12 students in making a prompt career decision. It is tailored for students who feel time pressure, are indecisive about their degree of choice or would like to verify their decision. Students complete the 300 question TurQuest inventory developed in the UK to learn the career areas and degrees in line with their interests. They can assess how realistic and suitable their career areas of interest are through the mini self check questionnaires. In light of the evidence from the report, students can make an informed decision about their degree and career choice. 

Workshop Outcomes:

  • Students explore their unique definitions of success, happiness, life, and career values.
  • They list the career areas, occupations, and university degrees in line with their interests provided in the TurQuest inventory.
  • They discover which aptitudes are required in different occupations through the Aptitude Inventory, and identify the areas they need to improve on.
  • They discover interests that they are not yet aware of and match them with careers/occupations.
  • Through TurQuest, students learn that interest in a certain occupation is not sufficient: they also need to be interested in the areas that support this career on a day to day basis. For instance, a student’s interest in fashion design may be 100% but they may have a lower interest in supporting areas such as IT or retail/buying/selling. The can decrease the numerical overall match value for a career in fashion design to 50%. Being aware of this when planning their career is vital to  being prepared and preventing disappointment in the long run.
  • Students gain knowledge about sectors, organisational structures (manager, expert, administrative staff etc.) and sectoral values.
  • They explore their options from a multidisciplinary perspective and make short-medium-and long-term action plans.
  • They clarify which areas require further research and seek advice from others.
  • They learn about occupations which combine different career areas (e.g. biomedical engineering which combines medicine and engineering).
  • They have instant access to the TurQuest report and the listed career areas via the app.


  • Participants receive a CAPS Career and Occupation Choice participation document after completion of the workshop.
  • Students who prefer may attend a one-day workshop with Year 10 and 11 students.
  • Parents can organise follow-up sessions and additional services to discuss the important points highlighted in the report.
