Choosing the right study programme is no easy task. There are so many options: sciences, mathematics, languages, computer science, etc. And yet, you need to make a choice before you start secondary education. In the Brussels-Capital Region, there are a number of associations and organisations that help you with this choice.
· You can solicit the Pupil Guidance Centres (CLB in Dutch) for information, help and guidance in your choice of studies. On the website of the Flemish Community Commission (VGC in Dutch) you can find the contact details of the various CLB networks and additional information.
· You can also find a whole host of information about the CLBs and other services for pedagogical guidance on the website of the Flemish Community.
· For help with your choice of studies and general guidance, you can also contact the Brussels youth services.
· The psychological-medical-social centres (PMS in Dutch) are free government services that provide guidance throughout your school career at the psychological, medical and social level. Parents and schools can also contact them with any queries. On the website of the French Community (only available in French) you can find a lot of information, as well as a list with all PMS centres (website only available in French).
· The Centre de Documentation et d'Information sur les Etudes et les Professions (CEDIEP) is the documentation and information centre for studies and professions of the French Community. They can be contacted all year round for information.
· The Service d'Information sur les Etudes et les Professions (SIEP) (website only available in French) is an information office in the area of study programmes and professions. Young people can contact them for information and personal advice. Every year, SIEP organises an open day on study programmes and professions for young people and their parents in the major Belgian cities, including Brussels.
