A new careers website gives students the low-down on careers in science, engineering and technology (SET). Gocracker aims to stimulate interest and enthusiasm for a career in SET among secondary school pupils, their parents and teachers. 

Rachel Mutters, Sales and Marketing Director at Crackergroup, said that they add an extra 'ingredient' to existing SET websites: 'We, through our employer and industry contacts, can actually show our visitors real careers, often with real global opportunities and very attractive salaries. We can prove that studying SET subjects is not only intellectually rewarding but it is also financially rewarding.' 

The site offers information on SET subjects, industry sectors, apprenticeships, colleges, universities and leading employers. Resources for teachers include lesson plans, event listings, online games and cards and posters to promote the site to their students.
