Try Jed for free

Try Jed for free and see how it suits your needs. Here's how:

Use from the internet, demo mode

Want to try Jed straight away? Go to the online Jed demo (opens in a new window).

In demo mode, Jed shows only the jobs whose main name begins with A-C. Two of the videos are also available – for 2019-20 you can view zoo keeper and medical photographer.

You can use online Jed without installing anything.

Use from the internet, evaluation licence

If you would like to use Jed from the internet without the demo version restrictions, then contact us and ask for a short-duration evaluation licence. This will unlock all the features and allow you to evaluate the full program. Online Jed has all the features of the installed version, except for localising.

Install Jed, evaluation licence

You may wish to install Jed to evaluate it, for example because you need to make sure that it will install on your particular type of network. If this is the case, please let us know and we'll happily send you the DVD. Installed Jed has all the features of the internet version, except for text-to-speech.


Jed is available as a site licence which covers every student and staff member at your site for just £254 + VAT per annum. If you're an adviser, and would like to take Jed wherever you go, then a personal licence is also available.

New for 2019-20

  • Improvements to how Jed does videos. They work, without plugins, on all browsers that come with recent versions of Windows, Chromebook, and Apple (including iPad). The videos now are a bit bigger too (higher resolution), for more detail at all screen sizes, including projectors and big screens.
  • Existing jobs reviewed and new ones added including drone pilot, sports journalist and learning officer.
  • New videos and picture sets including drone pilot and classical musician.
  • All factsheets reviewed. New factsheets added about T-levels, Scottish Highers and Advanced Highers, and Further Education.
