Onlining Worktree’s popular card game
Last month we asked you to complete our surveymonkey survey to help with the data we need to update our popular trumps-style Job Cards for young people to use at school and home.

We plan to extend this resource further, beyond being just a physical card game, to being a powerful online careers education resource that guides the ‘player’ through their ‘strengths’ and ‘likes’ to identify the jobs best suited to them.
