Unifrog - The Complete Destinations Platform

Dear Parent/Carer,

In keeping with our commitment to provide students with outstanding careers guidance and tailored support when choosing their next step after school, we are using Unifrog; an award- winning, online careers platform. All students in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 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 and webinars
• Recording– self-reflection about extra-curricular 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)

Students access the platform by clicking a link in their welcome email, where they create a password and can begin using the platform. They login to Unifrog using their email address and password and they can do so from any computer, tablet or smartphone. We would encourage you to use the platform with your child so you can support them through the process of deciding their next step.

All Year 10 students will attend an assembly on Monday 14th November for a Unifrog Launch and will then have a sign up session with their Tutor Group over the coming weeks.

For more information, see PowerPoint for parents explaining how to use the various sections of Unifrog or go to www.unifrog.org.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs F Roome
