My career action plan

Beginning or changing your career will take several steps. Use this career planning checklist by entering your own details below and then print this page.

What do I need to do?

This tool enables you to generate a custom checklist. We’ve included some common action items to get you started. You can edit or delete these, or add your own – creating a list that's tailored just for you.

Once you finish customising, download your checklist in PDF format. You can show it to a parent or a careers adviser to get their feedback and use it as a guide for the key things you need to do.

Customising your checklist


  • Enter a goal - type in the text field.


  • Edit a task – select 'Edit’ on the task. 
  • Add a new task – use the ‘Add task’ button at the bottom of the list. 
  • Delete a task – select ‘Remove’ on the task you wish to remove.


  • Edit a subtask – select 'Edit’ on the task that contains the subtask.  
  • Add a new subtask – select the ‘Add subtask’ link (visible in task-editing mode). 
  • Re-order a subtask – grab using the handle at the top of the subtask. 
  • Delete a subtask – select ‘Remove’ on the subtask you wish to remove.
