Professional development opportunities and resources for Sussex staff

Planning your development

The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) occupational maps demonstrate where technical education can lead and the relationships that exist between education, qualifications, apprenticeships and occupations in England. 

The maps allow you explore occupations by searching for a specific job, or browsing broader types of jobs. These occupations are shown on cards, along with details of relevant apprenticeships and other technical education qualifications, and possible career progression.
