icould is an online charity providing career ideas and information for young people.
Free and simple to use, icould.com offers a real-life look at career choices. The site helps draw links between school subjects and jobs, shows what is possible in work, and encourages young people to discover opportunities they may not have known about before.
icould.com features over 1000 videos of real people sharing their own career stories, and explaining their job role, career path and challenges along the way.
