Parent and carers careers information

Helping Your Child Begin Their Career Journey

We would like to share a guide to help parents and carers steer their children through the confusing world of careers choices. From university and apprenticeships to work experience and gap years, our guide has it all.

The full guide will be out next academic year – but we wanted to share a preview version to help you as lockdown continues.

As part of our commitment to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world, we are delighted to announce that we are using an innovative online resource called Start. Some of you may have used this before but it looks a little different and has loads more features.


Start will help you to connect with your future career potential, develop your employability skills and help you to explore future career and study options at the academy or at home.


We are asking you to create your own account in Start.


Once you are registered, you can personalise your profile on Start by answering a few questions, details about your skills, qualities, interests and work preferences. This information provides a starting point for you to explore information matched to your personal preferences and interests. As you update their profile, Start will personalise this information, helping you to navigate the thousands of jobs, courses, providers and opportunities available.


Start will help students to understand where they are on their journey and what’s important as they make their choices at GCSE, post-16 and post-18.


There are some great videos from employers such as Bentley Motors, British Airways, BBC and many more to inspire you with your journey.
