Resources For Schools

Welcome teachers and career advisors! We have created a number of resources that we hope will help you to help your students make good choices about university.

We will be adding new features on this page throughout the year, so we'd like to encourage you to sign up to receive occassional email updates from us.

If you do, you will be entered into our prize draw to win an ipad!

 





Lesson plans

We have created six new lesson plans relating to a number of different subjects. These lesson plans are designed to be used as interactive guides to the website, which will allow your students to explore courses and careers related to specific A level subjects.

I think this is a great little bit of kit for students to play with and have a bit of fun while researching. It will help them compare the market (LMI) and compare HE courses (at high level) with their subjects they are thinking of studying at A level or currently taking (Y12/13).

It gives a snap shot which sometimes can help when sitting down with students on a 1:1 to try to demonstrate the routes they could take or 'reality' checks that sometimes have to be given!
