A career is the variety of experiences that you have assumed throughout your life. As you gather more experience in the world of work and life, you are building your career. Your career path can take account of your education, training and paid/unpaid work.
It also includes your family/ life roles, activities,
volunteer work, community involvement etc.

Whether you are starting to think about your career or wanting a career change, we have a vast selection of resources below to help you.

Student Sector Spotlight Podcast

Once a month, we shine the spotlight on a different sector in the Humber region, giving students, teachers and parents the opportunity to tune in and hear from CEO's, MD's, founders, employees and other influential people.

From acting to marketing, listen in monthly and hear all about the possible pathways into various sectors in the Humber. Find out what GCESs you might need to succeed or whether an apprenticeship or Uni is the right pathway for you.

We are here to ask the important questions that young people need to know to help them make confident informed decisions about their future.

You can also tune in on Spotify!

THE LADDER: Student booklet

Introduction for teachers or parents:

This booklet is designed to support your learners during National Careers Week (NCW) and takes inspiration from my book The Ladder: Supporting students towards successful futures and confident career choices. National Careers Week takes place every year at the start of March, and it’s the UK’s biggest celebration of careers education, inspiration and guidance. Whether you’re getting involved in NCW or not, these tools from The Ladder will be useful for your students to reflect on themselves, their skills and how they get their message across via applications, personal statements, CVs or interviews. DOWNLOAD HERE.

Using the mantra that ‘every adult is a careers teacher’, The Ladder aims to inspire and support educators and education leaders to explicitly link their subject area(s) to students’ futures in and outside school. There are plenty of free, effective and easy-to-use ideas to help you to support them in the book and referred to or signposted throughout it. To Buy the book click here.
