How to find the right careers advice for your year group

Hello and welcome back! Excited for the start of term? No, don't tell us, we know you are...

Whatever year group you're starting in, we know you're going to have a lot going on over the next three terms. It's easy to forget about careers stuff when you're busy studying and doing a host of other things in your spare time. But keeping an eye on careers throughout the next year can save you time and help you in lots of ways, from picking GCSE's to choosing a university or apprenticeship and figuring out where you would like to go for work experience as well as how to apply.

The content on our site is designed to work for students of different ages, but some bits will be more relevant to you than others. So, we've taken the liberty of grouping some content together based on what you'll be up to this year. We hope you find it useful. As always we'd love to hear your comments and suggestions so drop us a line on info@successatschool.org or leave a message in the Suggestion Box on our forum if there's more you'd like to see on the site!

DON'T FORGET, THERE'S STILL TIME TO ENTER OUR COMPETITION TO WIN AN IPAD MINI. It's only open to registered students, so definitely worth taking a minute to apply!
