Next week we’ll be meeting some experienced careers advisers who’ll be exploring the actual interaction with learners and parents. You’ll hear about how the careers landscape is changing and how to adapt, and have more opportunity to share ideas and learn from your peers.

Review of Week 1 and how to find out more about HE

Louise Evans, Head of UCAS Adviser Experience reflects on this week’s activities which we hope have helped you to enhance and extend your knowledge of higher education in the UK.

Louise also sets out the topics and focus for week 2 - when you will hear from experienced careers advisers and focus on how you can support your students’ decision making. To help inform your work, you will also learn more about the changing careers landscape, and, for completeness, non-university pathways and study opportunities.

If you have more time, below we have added some links to additional resources you may find useful at the bottom of this page. Update: we’ve also added a downloadable document with details of ‘UCAS resources for advisers and their students’.

You can also download the 3 student scenarios and answers to the Ready, Steady, Search activity in the previous step.
