Personal guidance - an enriched virtual model.

There's a growing expectation amongst students that at least part of their careers provision will be accessed digitally and young people today are more capable and in favour of self-servicing their information needs than any generation before them.

Time spent with a careers adviser, however, is an essential experience for all students so that they can receive advice and guidance that is relevant to them. Start significantly enhances the face-to-face guidance model for everyone involved in the process - from preparing students and identifying those most in need of further support, to recording and evidencing the outcomes of guidance interviews.

As a matrix Standard accredited organisation, we support and supply qualified careers guidance professionals to schools across the country and train them on how to use Start to enhance and extend the impact of their work.
