Students who have a vision of where they want to be in the future may find it easier to plan their next steps more easily. To help students and parents to get an idea of what types of jobs are out there we would suggest looking at a number of these websites:

Local opportunities

With developments in technology there are now numerous jobs that did not exist 15 years ago. It is important to keep up to date with what is happening locally, nationally and internationally.

In regards to local opportunities, Cornwall and Isle of Scilly are leading the way in a number of exciting developments with a range of sectors including space, geothermal engineering, mining and IT. Click the links below for more information:
