The app that provides school leavers with free, impartial information on their future and options.
Young people can access advice and information 24/7 on finance, life skills, further education and local events.
They can also save dates to their phone's calendar to manage their diaries, access prospectuses and ask questions. The app is free and can be saved directly to their phone meaning info will be accessible quickly via the touch of a button.
As this is a PWA (progressive web app) it does not take up any precious space on the user’s phone and doesn't need to be downloaded from an app store, making it much easier for users to obtain.
School leavers will be encouraged to access the app via social media campaigns and careers services throughout the local area. It will host a multitude of competitions and offers to help keep the users attention and ensure a good retention of the app. We are working with local authorities to keep information up to date and relevant.
Features will include local information on:
- Further and higher education
- Types of qualifications
- Career opportunities
- Links to useful sites
Pocket Career applications can be purchased outright or supported by local advertising or sole sponsorships.
