Welcome to Futures, Term 4! At this point in the year you should be starting to get some ideas together about what you might like to go on and do when you finish college. In previous term pages you can find out lots of information surrounding Apprenticeships, University options, Gap Years, and Jobs to help you narrow down your decision making. This term's activities will continue supporting you through this research and will start to look at next steps.
At this point we would like to start using Unifrog a little more often- it's such a great tool for looking at next steps.
This week we are going to ask you to create your first Unifrog shortlist. This can be for University courses (UK or abroad), Apprenticeships, or even local Jobs- whatever you like.
Please watch the short video to support you with how to make a Unifrog shortlist.
