The site offers adults one-stop information, tools and stories to help them take the first step to higher education - as a way to improve career prospects, cope with a changing job role, etc.

NE Career Engine encourages adults to use their experience and skills – even if they do not have formal qualifications. 

Some of the useful features of the site include:

  • Information about a range of issues which users will be thinking about e.g. ‘Money matters’, ‘What are the benefits?’, ‘What, where and how?’, etc.
  • A 'Recommended Resources' tool which will match what users need to know to the information that best meets their requirements
  • Access to 100+ videos of other adults talking about overcoming a range of issues and taking the first step to higher education
  • Access to online, impartial, advice and guidance
  • A Progression Planner which will help adults find the right qualification for them
  • A link to all colleges, training providers and universities in the South West region
  • A HE Skills Map tool which will enable users to build and save a Profile of their skills and attributes and map their skills to those valued within higher education.
