As part of our commitment to providing students with careers guidance and tailored support when choosing their next step after school, we will now be using Unifrog; an award-winning, online careers platform. All students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 now have access to this excellent website. We will operate a launch of the platform and portal and be using their quality assured resources as part of the PD day and form time programme when back at school but students are able to begin navigating and exploring the platform as soon as they receive their joining email. This will be sent directly to student email accounts when it is set up.
The Unifrog platform is designed to support learners in making the most informed decisions about their futures and has a range of tools that are suitable for all year groups. Each student has their own personal account that provides a wide range of information related to their interests and aspirations. Key features of the platform include:
> Exploring Pathways – personality quizzes, career and subject profiles, MOOCs and webinars
> Recording – self-reflection about extracurricular activities and key employability skills
> Opportunities – search tools showing live vacancies/courses/placements for apprenticeships, universities (in the UK and abroad), FE, virtual work experience and much more
> Applications – tools to help students build applications for a range of pathways (e.g., CVs, Personal Statements, Common App Essays)
Students access the platform by clicking a link in their welcome email, where they create a password and can begin using the platform. They login to Unifrog using their email address and password and they can do so from any computer, tablet or smartphone. We would encourage you to use the platform with your child so you can support them through the process of deciding their next step.
