The internet has been a great stimulus to careers education generally and there are a wide range of sites offering information.
The two main approaches are
• Sites which give careers help and advice and
• Those which are solely for job hunting and making applications directly to companies electronically.
As with all research on the internet care must be taken to ensure that the site visited is safe and effective.
Below are a selection of sites we recommend to view.
Connexions, Bury www.bury.gov.uk/connexions
The National Careers Service https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk
The National Apprenticeship Service www.apprenticeships.gov.uk
This is an excellent and recommended program for which the school resources and holds a license. It is also used by Connexions to generate career ideas. Part of the program allows students to search for information about careers, but part of the program requires some interpretation of the data given and it is recommended that students have an adviser present to assist.
