Supporting careers education, information, advice and guidance at JoG
Every child in school has access to our free online careers software, Start, which they will use during their PSHE lessons but are also able to access at home. This fantastic tool allows your child to find jobs that match their skills, qualities, interests and work preferences, understand what different careers are like, search live local Apprenticeship opportunities matched to their areas of interest and see which businesses are recruiting in the local area. Take a look at www.startprofile.com
