Job Explorer Database - JED

JED – Job Explorer Database.

 

Let me introduce you to a Careers tool that we use here at school. 

Its called JED which stands for 'Job Explorer Database'. 

Within this tool it gives a breakdown of a wide variety of different job roles.

  • It has pictures, quizzes, career facts of the day.
  • There are video clips of people conducting their actual roles in real life settings; real people doing real jobs.
  • It contains useful fact sheets and a tip/job of the day! 

 

Most importantly at this stage; It helps you choose your options.

Look at ‘choices at 14+’ within the Factsheets section.

Why don’t you take the Big Quiz! This may give you an idea as to a path you may wish to pursue  - it will certainly help! 

 

It is also very easy to access, JOB EXPLORERS DATABASE LOGIN

or Alternatively  please see the path as follows; 

  • Go onto the FROG/VLE 
  • Look for the Careers button – orangey yellow colour next to classcharts.
  • Then you will see Job Explorer Database written in red with a paragraph below. Within that paragraph there is an opportunity to 'click here'. This is the way to go onto the site whether the student is at school or at home. 
  • Then select JED.
