Synopsis

What's it Like to be a ? Firefighter by Elizabeth Dowen, Lisa Thompson

This series provides fun and accessible careers information for young people choosing what to study post-14. Each title offers a behind-the-scenes tour of a high-interest job typically entered through a vocational route. Snappy, easy-to-digest information and case studies are supported by a comprehesive guide to training and entry routes. At the end of year 9, pupils must choose course options that will determine whether they take a vocational or academic route through the rest of their education. These titles will help readers relate the huge range of vocational courses available to exciting jobs in the real world.
