Year 9 - Gaining momentum
Unifrog is a superb online resource which offers a ‘one-stop’ platform introduced to Warwick School pupils. It really is never too early to start considering your career ideas, and Year 9 are introduced to Unifrog as part of their PSHEE programme to facilitate their GCSE option choices.
Unifrog offers a single platform for every aspect of higher education. It allows pupils to compare every undergraduate course in the UK, every US university, and undergraduate programme taught in English within Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Pupils can compare UK degree apprenticeships and School Leaver Programmes, FE college courses, and colleges at Oxford and Cambridge.
Unifrog is also the place where pupils can record activities, achievements, and competencies, and then go on to draft the materials needed for applications - whether that is the Common App Essay for US applications or the UCAS Personal Statement. It is intuitive, easy to use and can be accessed on any device.
We have a strong partnership with INVESTIN, which has facilitated immersive career experience opportunities in 28 industries for pupils aged 12-18. INVESTIN’s purpose is to give pupils the knowledge, experience, and network needed to have a head start in their chosen career.
All pupils participate in engaging workshops during November on the topic of Future Careers, covering:
- Today’s job market
- Your career journey so far
- How to decide on your future career
- How to develop your employability skills
