The Complete Destinations Platform
Helping students find their future
In keeping with our commitment to provide students with outstanding careers guidance and tailored support when choosing their next step after school, and after much research regarding the best online careers platform, the Employability team made the decision to use a system called Unifrog.
Unifrog brings all the available information about careers, universities, apprenticeships and all other post 16 and 18 pathways into one, user-friendly, platform. All students in Years 7 – 13, now have access to this excellent website. Students can log in using their school email address and password and they can do so from any computer, tablet or smartphone.
Students are able to make the best, informed choices about their future by navigating through the many features that Unifrog has to offer. They simply log in, complete a number of activities, such as their interests and personality profiles and their current thoughts about which pathway they may choose – which can be updated regularly depending on the students’ choices at any one time.
Additionally, the platform helps students successfully apply for these opportunities by writing their personal statement, applications and CVs and guiding them through the process, allowing teachers to give live feedback.
Unifrog collates its data from a number of sources. This includes UCAS, the National Apprenticeships Service, The National Careers Service, Unistats, HESA, The Guardian, HEPI, the Cabinet Office, the Office for National Statistics, the Commission for Employment and Skills, the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, Ofsted, every UK university, UK university alumni, FutureLearn, Coursera, Udacity, every college at Oxford and Cambridge, and QS. They keep all their data up to date – for example, apprenticeships vacancies are updated every night.
The platform has now grown to encompass apprenticeships and Further Education colleges in the UK, as well as US and Canadian universities, and degrees taught in English in Europe, Asia, and Australasia.
We encourage Parents/Carers to use the platform with their son/daughter to support them through the process of deciding next steps. The login for Parents/Carers is DVNPparents and this will allow access to www.unifrog.org/code It’s as simple as completing the required fields and clicking ‘Sign up’.
