We work in partnership with schools and colleges, both in the UK and internationally, to enhance the careers support provided to students.

We care about making a difference

We believe that equipping young people with career management skills for life is important in helping their journey through school and their success and happiness after school.

We provide tailored solutions through our national and international network of professional careers advisers, well researched information, personal support, links with universities and employers and an in-depth appreciation of what is required of todays young people.

The student journey

Career education programmes in schools and college focus on supporting students to prepare for key transition points. Our services are designed to meet the needs of students at these stages so they can make informed and confident decisions.


Support for school staff

We work closely with the staff responsible for delivering careers and higher education programmes in their schools to help them deliver the very best support for their students. Support includes a unique school membership programme that provides a reassuring extra pair of hands, consultancy and invitations to events to help you keep your knowledge up-to-date.

Completing the Futurewise profile was a good and helpful experience for me, it literally opened my eyes to the future. I liked the job suggestions and was impressed with the personality, abilities and interest section too.

It has been really useful to use our IF membership days for mock interviews and provide Oakhamians with independent career guidance.

The Helpline makes a huge difference to the career provision at Wellingborough School. The amount of knowledge they have at their finger tips is invaluable. Their prompt response makes my job a lot easier so thank you. I would also like to say that the newsletter is a great source of information and is combined in to the school newsletter providing all the latest information.
