Positive Launch for AlphasCareers
As promised, www.alphascareers.com launched on the 1st September, on time and presenting over 650 job roles in our interactive free to use portal.
Probably the largest careers portal in the World, focussed on young people, we have been delighted with the response received from everyone that has viewed the site and registered already.
The Alphacareers.com team are in active discussions with a number of Trusts and Local Education Authorities to enrol many thousands of learners onto the portal and to work with them on their careers journey.
In the week where many young people have commenced their first year at University or indeed have returned to their undergraduate studies, we sincerely hope they have made the right decisions for their future careers because selecting the right University and the appropriate course is an expensive one and there are many other options open to young people in terms of their career pathways.
University is no longer the pathway for the most able. All Universities operate as businesses now and it is essential that they fill their courses at the beginning of term. The massive increase in unconditional offers and acceptance through clearing is an indication to us that some Universities will certainly not be operating objectively in terms of the advice they provide to young people. As one of the Alphascareers team was told in August on the week of clearing by one University, ‘if you breath we will take you’. A sign of the times but where the importance of independent careers advice becomes more important.
Get in touch with us now at firstname.lastname@example.org for an objective and independent discussion on how we can support you and your pupils with objective careers support.
