Morrisby is a software package to help  students to make suggestions about which career might be suitable for a student and what qualifications/training this would involve

The Morrisby Quiz is designed to enable students to:

  • Identify their work styles and environment preferences.
  • Identify the qualifications they will need to undertake a range of careers I’m interested in that are suggested by the questionnaire.
  • Use information gained to inform their GCSE options

Students have already had an opportunity to access the package in school but will only have been able look at a few different careers during the lesson so parents/carers are encouraged to support their child in accessing their Morrisby account at home.
