Online careers advice, Monday-Friday 9-5, for any key questions

The helpline is an invaluable resource for schools. Instead of having to do all the research yourself, we will research any key careers-related questions for you. There is nothing too specific to ask!

  • We will undertake in-depth research to provide a detailed response to questions you may receive from pupils, parents or teachers.

  • We can even create a word document resource specifically tailored around your question, for you to use in the future.

  • Get access to this highly personalised service, without increasing your staff workloads.

Examples of questions asked:

  • Do you have a guide or tips for applying to universities in Ireland?

  • Can international students apply to apprenticeships in the UK?

  • Can a British student study Law in France or Canada? What are the entry requirements and what law qualification would this provide? Also, where can they study French Law in the UK?

  • Have you any general information on BTECs that we could share with a parent?

  • My Year 13 student is studying Sociology, Psychology and Geography and has predicted grades of BCC. Where can they apply to study Paramedic Science to qualify as a paramedic? If becoming a Paramedic isn't possible, what else do you suggest?

The detailed research conducted by the FutureSmart helpline on my behalf has saved me so much time, I can’t tell you what a difference it has made to me and to my students!
