As part of United Learning’s commitment to providing your child with independent advice and guidance, Surrey County Council has purchased access to one of the country’s leading careers advice websites, U-Explore. Your child has been using this site in school, but we can also provide you with access to this resource as well.
U-Explore is the independent and impartial careers platform that inspires young people about their futures and places them in control of their own learning and progression. Not only does your child now have access to U-Explore at school, they can also log on anytime and wherever there is an internet connection, to access a wealth of exciting careers features, including over 2,000 written and video job profiles across 14 industry sectors, 360-degree Virtual Tours of real work environments and advice on how to apply for a college or university course, work experience placement or even a job.
There is no structured route through U-Explore. Your child can log on at any time, for instant access to completely impartial information, advice and guidance that will help them to make informed choices about their future options. If your child has no idea where to start, they can begin their journey by searching for their favourite subjects, interests, best skills and qualities or even the qualifications studying for.
You could sit with your child and discuss any thoughts they already have surrounding their future, encouraging them to make notes in the Notepad (found in the toolbar to the left of the page) or 'like' any jobs, qualifications, workplaces or learning environments that they are interested in. These preferences will be saved in your child's individual Profile, which can also be accessed from the toolbar to the left of the page.
