My Careers Options


Careers channel

My Careers Options (MCO) is a fantastic, effective intuitive and easy to use careers matching tool, aimed initially at 11 to 24-year-olds.

It is designed specifically to help young people find a more rewarding career and provide a constructive careers conversation starter for parents, schools and careers advisers.

My Careers Options is the exclusive career mapping psychometric partner to The Learning Partnership and forms an integral part of the Schools Connect "Inspiration to Employment" pathway.

MCO comprises of a scientifically accredited psychometric assessment and a Top 10 Careers Report, developed in partnership with The Psychometrics Centre at Cambridge University and Careers England.

It poses a series of questions, quizzes and puzzles that assess a young person's aptitudes in numeracy, spatial awareness and verbal reasoning as well as their personality, likes, dislikes and interests which all together, build a unique, holistic careers profile of the individual.

                                                                                 

                                                                 

 

 

             

 

 

On completion of the assessment a Top 10 Careers Report is automatically generated, which suggests ten careers that most appropriately fit the individual's careers profile.

This partnership offers every Dendrite registered Secondary School in the UK 100 free assessments for students considering or engaged in a post-GCSE STEAM learning pathway
