Careerpilot is what we use at the college to record and monitor student careers engagement and activity.
It also provides a wealth of information about all of the different options or ‘progression pathways’ available to students both during their time at KMC and after they leave.
Careerpilot also has a Parent Zone which is very comprehensive.
Get The Jump brings together all the choices that are available to you at post-16 and post-18, it can help you make an informed decision about your best next step.
Volunteering is a hugely valuable and rewarding experience both for the volunteers and for the organisations and communities they support.
Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills. It also shows prospective employers that you have a sense of social responsibility which is a highly desirable quality. Having volunteering experience on your CV will make your application stand out when you start applying for jobs.
Whether you’re involved in a local community project, a research task or part of a youth group, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Knowing you make a difference and have helped others is empowering and gives you a natural sense of purpose and accomplishment.
Get involved and give volunteering a go!
Labour Market Information is national data that can be used to inform and support students when making decisions about careers.
