There are many options that can help students discover the perfect pathway for them. Careers can be filtered through many searches. For students who are unsure what they want to do, filters by interest or favourite subject can be applied. For students who want to pursue a specific career, searches such as 'I want a job in' or 'What job can I get with the qualification...' can give an insight into different jobs in chosen fields.
Once the student has input a search, a variety of choices are available to help get a better understanding of the search. Related job searches, videos from professionals in the sector, businesses and qualifications can all be explored in more detail. Jobs and searches can be saved for reference in the future.
Clicking on a job role opens up a more detailed description such as what the job is about, money and perks, how to get into that career and suggestions for similar roles.
Students can also get more information on options available post 16 & post 18 such as college, university or apprenticeships.
