National Careers Service:

The National Careers Service website provides careers advice and information on a wide range of jobs, training courses etc.  There is a link to a section that enables you to search over 800 job profiles.  The Job Profile page gives an overview of what the job role consists of and will help to determine if it's the right job for the pupil.

Also available on the above link is a Skills Health Check that enables pupils to find out what jobs suit them best by doing a short assessment.  Log in will be required if you wish to save the Skills Health Check results. 

The school also have a careers resource which was purchased by Our Futures for the school -  this is another site which helps pupils prepare for a career interview and find out which jobs suit them:

Please contact Jackie Dawson, Careers Advisor for the password to access the resource.
