 Start


Start is a careers software programme that helps guide students towards clear, comprehensive and impartial information that’s always relevant to them. As students  begin to move towards the world of employment, sometimes the right information isn’t always available to them or that easy to understand. Helping our students make better choices about their journey through education to employment starts with Start.

Connected to live labour market information and course data, Start allows users to create a personal profile which generates suitable jobs, qualifications and new destinations to explore. We’ve specifically designed the Start interface to be intuitive and easy to use, so any student can begin to build their own profile in minutes. Start will provide clear, concise and up-to-date information on what they have to do to move towards a career in those industries, such as choosing the right subjects, courses or apprenticeships.

Students and parents can create an account at https://www.startprofile.com
