Welcome to TARGETcareers

Our mission – to provide inspiring possibilities for school leavers

TARGETcareers’ mission is to help you make choices about your future by providing expert information and advice on the range of career possibilities available. Whether you are considering going to university, joining a sponsored degree programme with an employer or taking another type of school leaver scheme such as a higher apprenticeship, TARGETcareers can help you take the next step in your education or career.

Who are we?

TARGETcareers is part of GTI Media. Since 1988 GTI has produced careers advice products and services for university students across the UK and has helped millions of graduates find their first jobs. You may have heard of our brands: TARGETjobs, TARGETjobs Events and TARGETpostgrad. Our content is produced by a team of expert careers editors and we have won awards for the quality of our advice content and the usability of our websites. We work with big-name employers, as well as universities, and also partner with other organisations that are passionate about helping young people achieve their career aims.

What can we do for you?

We can help you decide which career interests you and find out about the different ways you can get into it. We can give you a hand thinking about whether you’d like to start work after your A levels, Highers or equivalent or if you’d prefer to go to university full time first. And we can provide advice on choosing the best degree or school leaver programme for you.

More coming soon!

TARGETcareers has not finished building – there’s lots more to come. Our searchable database of school leaver programmes across the UK is about to launch. And come back soon for lots more info to help you compare and select university courses.
