Careers education in Y7 - Y11 at Swinton Academy is delivered in part through the digital platform ‘Start’ which helps your child to make more informed decisions about future study and career options. Here your child can set up their own profile where they have access to explore information on a vast amount of jobs including qualifications needed, salary, what the job is about and much more.
By completing questionnaires, ‘Start’ will generate jobs best suited to your child’s skills, interests and qualities. ‘Start’ also provides up to date information on the job market and opportunities in Rotherham and the UK.
You can use 'Start' at home with your child by visiting www.startprofile.com and registering by following the step by step instructions outlined in the ‘how to register to start – instructions for students and parents/carers’ guide. Alternatively, your child can log in using the password and username they created in their careers session.
