How does it work:

  • Provides access to structured, short Insights in a range of occupations
  • No selection criteria for students; the automated platform allocates Insights based on students preferences and locality providing access to professions with high barriers to entry irrespective of race, gender, sexuality, religion, academic ability or socio-economic background
  • Digital platform contains information and guidance about career options and each student will have a personal dashboard of experiences and notes
  • Unique certificates provided on completion of each Insight to accompany CV
  • Simple registration process for schools, colleges and employers - upon completion schools and students will receive details of relevant new Insight as it becomes available
  • Can be delivered by employers of all sizes and can be ‘super-local’ if local employer is identified and enrolled by school or college
  • Simplifies and automates the interaction between schools, colleges, students and employers
