Schools of all sizes work with our team to build their bespoke careers guidance service which offers them fantastic value for money.

An agile, innovative careers service for schools, powered by our iProgress app

Built to inform and empower Career Leads, students, and parents, our custom careers app, iProgress, places the power at your fingertips. Complementing our face-to-face delivery, school leaders can access reporting at the touch of a button and students can check out local Labour Market Information (LMI) to help them make informed decisions about their future. They can also book meetings with their adviser.

Helping You Achieve the Quality in Careers Standard

Working alongside school leaders, we support schools to achieve the Quality in Careers Standard. We have partnered with Ixion Holdings, an awarding organisation who offer the single national Quality Award, to impartially assess your CEIAG programme against the requirements of the standard. Our team fulfills the support and assessment elements on behalf of the awarding body, making the process as seamless and stress-free for you as possible.

We champion the Quality in Careers Standard in all schools where we work as it’s a brilliant way to demonstrate your commitment to your students’ futures.
