Our school has a subscription to eCLIPS, a site that provides regularly updated information on over 1,000 jobs and careers. It also offers advice on education and training, employ-ability skills, job seeking and lifestyle choices. It is researched and written by qualified careers authors and is regularly updated and checked by professional bodies and employer organisations. You can search alphabetically, by topic or by browsing job families and the interactive Career Wizard tool offers job suggestions based on users preferences. You'll need the school password - it was sent home via a letter earlier this half term and should be written in your child's planner. It is also displayed around school on posters. If you can't find it, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a reminder. www.eclips-online.co.uk
