Unifrog - The Complete Destinations Platform
In keeping with our commitment to provide students with outstanding 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.
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 for the first time during Year 7 using a login provided by the school. They login to Unifrog using their school email address and choose their own password and they can do so from any computer, tablet or smartphone. Students work through a programme of activities each year as part of their form time pastoral and mentoring activities. This helps them to familiarise themselves with the resources available and provides some careers guidance. However, students have access to Unifrog whenever they wish to use it and so are encouraged to access the platform at any point in their school career. We also encourage parents to use the platform with their child to support them through the process of deciding their next step.
Throughout the school year we will share sign up codes for parents to use to access Unifrog. These will be published in the school newsletter but may only be valid for a specified time period.
