Start - Your Online Careers Profile

Click here to re-direct you to Start.


As part of our commitment to prepare students for a rapidly changing world, we are delighted to announce that we are using an innovative online resource called Start.
Start will help you to connect with your study options, develop your employability skills and explore career choices from school or at home.

Student Use

From September 2021, all students will have a Start login. The username will be set the same as your username for accessing IT systems in school.
Students personalise their profile on Start with details about their skills, qualities, interests and work preferences. This provides a starting point for them to explore information matched to their personal preferences and interests. As they update their profile, Start will personalise this information, helping them to navigate the thousands of jobs, courses, providers and opportunities available. Start will help students to understand where they are on their journey and what’s important as they make their choices at GCSE, post-16 and post-18.

Parent/Carers and Start

We encourage parents/carers to use Start with your child at home. Students can be encouraged to rate jobs, qualifications, colleges or universities so that we can see their preferences in order to support them better.

For more information on Start or the support available for you, please contact
