College and university staff

Help your students prepare for their future career by using My World of Work. 

Our tools will help them understand more about themselves, their strengths and their future goals – which gives valuable insight when developing their personal profiles.

And we have a range of resources for career education to help you bring the world of work to life, no matter what stage your students are at.

The resources:

  • Support the visons, values and ambitions clearly set out in the College Sector Statement of Ambition 2018-2023
  • Support delivery of the Entitlements and ‘I can’ statements defined by the Career Education Standard
  • Introduce Career Management Skills and Meta-skills
  • Help when preparing reports for How Good is Our College Self-Assessments

We've created resources to show the links between How Good is Our College and the delivery of career education using My World of Work.

If you would like more information or support with these resources, please contact our Education Team at: education@sds.co.uk
