"Since introducing Unifrog a few years ago as part of our CEIAG programme, student engagement across all year groups has soared. We have used the platform in PSHE, utilised many of the fantastic blended learning plans in careers lessons and been able."

Newcastle Under Lyme School

Esme Major, Head of Careers
Newcastle Under Lyme School

"Unifrog is a fantastic platform which supports the development and tracking of young people’s skills and DYW experiences while also linking them to the Career Education Standard. For S5/6 offers information and support for a positive destination no matter whether the young person’s pathway is into the workplace, Further or Higher Education. The Unifrog team are extremely helpful and I would highly recommend this wonderful resource."

Balerno High School

Ros Ranger, Deputy Head
Balerno High School

"Unifrog is absolutely crucial in the delivery of careers education at Trent College. It is easy to use and navigate for pupils and staff alike and our pupils would be hugely disadvantaged without it. We now use Unifrog with all year groups, from 7-13 and I am evangelical about it, both the platform and the support provided are fabulous!"

Trent College

Fiona Starbuck, Careers Leader
Trent College

"It’s our mission to ensure that all of our students, no matter what their background, have access to the best careers advice - and Unifrog is fundamental in enabling us to achieve this goal."

Birkenhead Sixth Form College

"Unifrog is the perfect careers platform for our KS3 and KS4 students. The easily accessible resources and tools enable them to make informed choices regarding their next steps."

Caludon Castle

Alex Handy, Assistant Head
