Aimed at ambitious school leavers, TARGETcareers FUTUREWISE gathers all the resources needed for young people to choose a career, apply to university or join a school leaver programme in one place. Together, we combine the expert careers advice and job listings offered by TARGETcareers with FUTUREWISE, the career and higher education programme from Inspiring Futures, to help students discover their career aspirations and make educated decisions about their future.
As an employer, we offer you unprecedented opportunities to engage with school leavers actively considering their career options. TARGETcareers FUTUREWISE provides you with the very best multimedia tools and face-to-face channels to target the right students and promote your job vacancies and apprenticeship programmes to a highly receptive audience.
Here’s how you can engage with school students through TARGETcareers FUTUREWISE:
School students want to know as much about your company as possible. On targetcareers.co.uk you can create a ‘hub’, which will be a focal point for information on school leaver careers with your organisation. Your employer hub can include:
Post your job vacancies on targetcareers.co.uk and students can easily find you in their searches by region, employer, career sector or job type. Upgrade to a 'featured job' for extra visibility in our search listings.
With our tailored email service, you can target students by year group, postcode, region, UCAS points, school and career sector. Our range of emails include:
We distribute 200,000+ free copies of our school leaver publications to over 6,000 schools and FE colleges. Advertising in our publications means you can showcase your programme to a large, yet highly targeted audience. View the advertising specs here. Publications include:
Find out about the different options for students when they leave school, including university, apprenticeships, professional qualifications and more. You can also see the top 200 employers that school students say they want to work for and read the stories of those already working there.
Written by our specialist engineering and construction editor, this publication helps students, teachers and parents understand apprenticeship, employer training and university options in construction, engineering and surveying.
Paths to Professional Careers – a Parent’s Guide is designed for parents of 15 to 18 year old school students who are deciding what to do after their A levels, Scottish Highers or International Baccalaureate.
The guide includes detailed advice on weighing up the benefits of going to university versus joining an employe and gaining higher qualifications while working, checklists of what to research about both options, and profiles of professionals who’ve followed different routes into their careers.
The guide is sponsored by ICAEW – the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
Career insight events
Inspiring Futures run a wide range of career insight events in a variety of subject areas from Engineering to AI and Robotics. These events put employers in front of young talent to position their brand and profile to a host of students from different social backgrounds. From attending these events, students from years 11-13 and S4-6 experience what it’s like to work in their chosen field. Students encounter new environments, network with industry professionals and take part in hands-on activities to further their skills set and knowledge of their chosen career path. These events are a fantastic opportunity for brand awareness and to educate a large volume of students about your business.
We offer employers the opportunity to:
School leaver fairs
The School Leaver fairs are regional events that are hosted by leading schools. These fairs are a great opportunity for employers to reach out to a large volume of students around the country and to increase awareness about their company directly into schools.
Students have the potential to meet with employers who can discuss their higher apprenticeship, internships and school leaver opportunities instead of, or after, their year out. We also offer advertisement opportunities in our exclusive School Leaver programme which is distributed to all the schools we work with at the fairs.
