Exciting new changes!

We are excited to announce that we have merged our Futurewise programme with TARGETcareers

Futurewise can now be found on the TARGETcareers website:

Together we can bring you:

  • More resources: we have a dedicated research and editorial team whose sole task is to develop up to date and accurate careers and higher education content, such as subject guides, alternatives to university, making the most of work experience, how to prepare for interviews and assessment centres and many more!
  • Simplified navigation: students can access their Futurewise assessment results, their report, guidance notes and career suggestions as well as personalised information and career research tools from any device, any time or anywhere.
  • Employer opportunities: students enrolled in Futurewise will have direct access to employers through career insight events, internships as well as information about apprenticeships and school leaver schemes.
  • Degree Explorer: the online questionnaire will help students explore the subjects they are interested in and narrow down their degree course choices. Once they have a final list they can read more about the courses and the careers they can lead to and/or link directly to our university search tool. The Degree Explorer can also work in a classroom setting with supporting lesson plans available for teachers.
