How to use the Young Professional Journey to Work

Just sign up as a Young Professional, log into your dashboard and choose one of the eight Journey to Work courses to get started. You have a range of courses to try, from You and Your Needs to Confidence and Emotions, Experience and Taking Charge of your Career.

To pass each course you’ll need about 2 hours, but additional content will surface to help you explore what you need in more detail if you want to.

You don’t need to be tackling this all in one go and you don’t have to do it alone, you can choose to share the topics and activities with family, teachers, employers, apprenticeship providers and support workers.
