YEAR 8 GUIDED CHOICES
SUBMITTING YOUR GUIDED CHOICES:
You will get an invitation email through your school email. The guide here takes you through how to proceed. Please note: it is NOT the exact wording and images from our forms, but all the principles you need are exactly the same.
We need you to make 6 choices, following the rules for your Guided Choices, and make sure they are in the right order for your preferences. The compulsory choices must be in the higher choice positions, so that your list of free choices is in preference order down to choice 6.

All students in year 8 and above have their own profiles. They can research future options by subjects or skill type, they can complete a personality test, record their achievements and keep track of their career progress. Later in school students can use the software to find opportunities and develop their applications to universities, apprenticeships and jobs.
Students can log in using their school e-mail address via the website above
