Seamless integration in your website

Explore is designed to be embedded into a single full page of your website. Its simple layout and colour customisation allows for seamless integration with your website. Course page URL's are mapped to the underlying system allowing Explore to link directly from occupations to relevant course pages.

Promotes courses by mapping them to careers

For students who are unsure of what courses they might want to take, Explore offers a careers first approach. Our automatic careers to courses mapping technology means that students can find the careers they are interested in and Explore will highlight the related courses you offer.

The Profile Quiz finds careers matching a student's interests

The Profile quiz allows you to engage early with students and get them interested in thinking about which careers might be right for them. A series of 30 simple multiple choice questions determine a student's personal attributes which are applied to six different personality types. On completion students find out their personality type and which jobs would be suited to them.

Use as a CIAG resource with your students

Pathways Explore is a great resource to start your students getting excited about careers. It's a light touch tool with no registration or login barriers. Students can immediately find out about jobs without having to navigate their way through complex careers tools. It gets straight to the point and can even link to courses you offer.

Raise awareness of a huge variety of careers

A student's experience of careers is often limited to the people they know and the jobs those people do. Pathways Explore is a careers library of over 800 job roles. Students can take a quiz to find out more about what careers might be suited to them or search careers by sector. Each job role includes a detailed description as well Labour Market Information allowing students to broaden horizons and understand what's available to them.
