At Windsor we use the impartial careers advice website Unifrog. Unifrog is an online tool that each student can access to support them in preparing for the next steps in their educational pathway towards employment, informing them about varying careers and a full range of options available to them. Students can easily find and apply for every course and apprenticeship in the UK – including choices from sixth form and college, university courses and apprenticeships.
Unifrog helps to enable students to consider and plan for their transition to the right destinations. Students can compare side-by-side every post-16 and post-18 opportunity in the UK. They can rank on lots of factors, such as starting salary, distance from home, drop out rate, and weekly study hours.
Every student in the school from Year 7 to Year 13 can use the tool to log skills and experiences linked to employability, and to log activities in which they have felt a sense of achievement, helping to build a portfolio of evidence towards their next steps.
Unifrog also has an extensive careers library for students to browse, research and ‘favourite’ in their discovery of the fast-changing professional world they are preparing to enter.
