Unifrog launched with year 12

This week we have launched Unifrog with our year 12 students in their enrichment sessions.

 Unifrog has all university and course information alongside apprenticeships. It aids students in shortlisting their courses and writing their personal statements.

It aims to bring all the available information into one single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications.

Students have been set the task to complete their personality profile quiz and complete 'MOOCs' which are massive, open online courses, these offer them free courses in topics that are of interest to them.

 Feedback so far has been great, students are finding out about their personalities, including some surprises! The course information is helping to narrow down their options and they are signing up for online open days.

 Well done, year 12!
