If you are unsure of where to look for information on Careers and Apprenticeships, here are some resources available to start you off:

Please follow this link to register for a free student account to gain access to the SPARTAN test, provided by SACU. The test is completely free of charge and generates three separate suggestion clouds; University, Careers and Apprenticeships. You can then explore these clouds extensively and look at relevant links, data and help. It’s an extremely useful tool generated by ex-UCAS employees to help students make decisions. Registration provides students with a hub for storing their results and managing their findings.

This is The Dean Academy Careers Blog.  All opportunities that are sent through to us for students are posted here on a regular basis.  It is a great resource for work experience, taster days, workshops, events, open days/evenings, hints and tips, further education, apprenticeships and everything in-between!  We also feature Enterprise opportunities and community schemes and classes. This is the website of The National Careers Service.  They have information on pretty much every job you might be interested in.  You can use them to find out what options or qualifications you will need to get to be able to do the job you want.  You can also contact them to talk through your career questions/worries.  If you don’t want to do that over the phone, they provide a live web-chat service. They also provide advice and guidance on CV Writing, Interviews and Application Forms. This is the Government Apprenticeships website.  It’s got a lot of information on Apprenticeships, what they are and how to apply.  It showcases a range of high-profile companies who have opportunities available.

Gloucestershire County Council’s YES2jobs (Youth Employment and Skills) campaign puts our county at the cutting edge of youth employment and skills development.

The YES2jobs campaign has been highly successful and is well supported by a very useful website

I would urge you to have a look at the website where you will find a huge amount of very useful local information about employment vacancies with Gloucestershire employers, work experience opportunities, apprenticeships.

All of these websites are FREE to use, and have a lot of information to get you started.

If you still feel like you don’t have answers to your questions or you would like to talk to someone in person, please book in to see our Careers Advisor! You can do this with your College Manager or Miss Harvey in D2 at break or lunch.
