What is Careers Menu

Careers Menu allows pupils and parents to navigate many free websites packed with careers and labour market information. It presents with a series of questions such as What kind of person am I? What are my options?, How do I find out which jobs might be suitable for me? How do I choose my career. These questions then lead to a variety of different websites. Many of the websites provide interactive, engaging resources where pupils can get advice and information in a fun way. Examples of resources below.

  • Career matching quizzes and interactive sites e.g. ( Icould , Future Morph and Careers box)
  • Job Videos and case histories (I could)
  • Career ideas/job families (plotr)
  • Writing a CV (passportfolio)
  • Writing a personal statement (Ucas)
  • Post 16 Routes (Ucas, National Careers Service)
  • Apprenticeships (National Apprenticeship website, Ucas)

Pupils and parents can register for careers menu using the school exam number, which can be obtained via the school office. Pupils should use their school username and school password to register. Email Mrs Selfe selfet@st-james.bolton.sch.uk if you need any help.
