- a parent
- a mature student without formal qualifications looking for guidance on entry routes into higher education
- someone considering a career change or retraining
- in full-time employment but interested in studying part-time for a professional qualification to help you develop your career

- a teacher, careers advisor or employment and training adviser who needs to source information on behalf of a student or client.
