Job Explorer Database (JED) - annual institution licence
Job Explorer Database (Jed) has information on 856 jobs (over 2500 career titles) presented in a clear and lively way that students of all abilities can understand.
Careers education and guidance is interesting when it taps into the user's natural sense of curiosity. Jed has a 'get clicking' attitude with lots of pathways through the program, including over 340 high quality video case studies, pictures, quizzes, 'top tens', career facts of the day, and text. Jed's quizzes take minutes to do, not hours, so that users can get on with exploring careers and thinking about what will and won't suit them.
Helps schools meet their duty to provide students with independent careers guidance from Year 8 to Year 13. Supports you in achieving the Gatsby Benchmarks. Helps raise aspirations by showing how current studies link to future careers. Encourages students to start thinking about the choices they will make when they leave school. Presents comprehensive information on over 850 jobs in a way that is accessible to a wide variety of users of all ages, including some special needs (First Jed). Makes careers education engaging and interesting!
