Connecting with opportunities

Our secure messaging system ensures the communication between students and employers is totally safeguarded. All connections must be approved by the school mentor. All further communication does not need to be approved, but the mentor will receive a duplicate copy.

Startingpoint is fully encrypted with security measures in place to comply with GDPR and keep your data safe.
