Schools and Academies

The Unique Careers Platform

Web portal and mobile app

Schools and academies can increase positive outcomes for their students by utilising the StartingPoint web and app platforms for work experience placements. StartingPoint empowers students with the tools to succeed. The StartingPoint Web and APP platform has been developed for the 21st century, giving students the tools they need to showcase themselves for work experience opportunities.

Increase positive career outcomes

The ultimate goal of StartingPoint is to increase positive career outcomes while making life easier for schools with a platform that can be easily integrated into their careers and citizenship work schemes. Students create and manage their own profiles where they can share their talents and achievements. Mentors simply monitor and guide the student’s profile to help them put their best foot forward.

Once ready, students can search and apply for work opportunities and apprenticeships directly added by employers. Our unique messaging function means that the contact between candidates and employers is completely safeguarded. This innovative approach not only streamlines the process for students but also ensures a secure and transparent communication channel, fostering a conducive environment for positive connections between aspiring individuals and prospective employers. StartingPoint stands as a beacon, illuminating the path towards brighter futures for the next generation.

What the experts Say

“Starting Point is a fantastic digital tool to enhance the levels of engagement students can have with employers. The platform allows employers to connect with prospective employees at a different level. It showcases all skills, attitudes and behaviours which can often make a student stand out from others.”
