Local London START careers platform for young people
2 March 2021
Local London and U-Explore have been developing a new careers website for young people.
Young people will access a careers website that is meaningful to them, with local images, local information, and local labour market and jobs info, as well as more generic careers information, skills development, work experience insights, and information about employers in London. There is a unique page and website address for each borough, so young people will access START in Waltham Forest, START in Bexley etc.
START Local London is free to young people and free to schools and colleges. The platform will provide young people with a wide range of on-line tools and resources to find post-16 and post-18 courses, explore careers and build their skills.
Schools and colleges can also record activities on the site to count towards their achievement of the national Gatsby careers benchmarks.
