our work with UK schools and colleges
Meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks
We will be your trusted partner in meeting all 8 of the Gatsby Benchmarks.
We have carefully developed the platform itself to help - for example by adding extra regional and national LMI into the job profiles in our Careers Library.
We also bring to bear lessons learned from working with 3,000+ schools and colleges to help consultatively. For example when you first start to plan how you'll use the platform, and then in our ongoing strategic meetings with you - we shape our advice and training to support you to meet particular Benchmarks.

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."
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!"
Fiona Starbuck, Careers Leader
"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."
Jo Wood, Head of Student Development and Careers Programme Leader
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."
Rosemary Atkinson, Head of Careers
Da Vinci Academy
"Our careers and university processes were quite good to start with, and Unifrog slotted in nicely with those, without demanding a complete overhaul of what we were already doing."
Alex Handy, Assistant Head
"Unifrog has made us more efficient as we can now log all career interviews, employer engagement and events in one place, which students also have a log of."
Karen Jefford, Head of Careers
Durrington High School
"The platform acts as a means of recording achievements and tracking students’ engagement in extra-curricular activities, as well as a means of adding activities we run in school using the Interactions tool. The opportunity for them to record and reflect is invaluable."
Catherine Jacks, Head of Careers
"Both the subject and career libraries are used to help pupils plan for their futures and to assist in making decisions such as KS4 options and post-16 progression... We are also finding parents are keen to use the platform with their children at home."
Danny Devlin, Head of Careers

Rebecca Brattle, Head of Sixth Form
Robert Napier Academy
"From a strategic point of view, it allows us to sit back and know exactly what staff and students are doing and how they’re engaging with our stable careers programme."

I recommend it to everyone."
Caroline King, Careers and External Relations Officer
The King's School Macclesfield
"''The way the Unifrog team led the training sessions was exemplary: it was concise and practical. They were very keen to make the whole process of getting us trained and ready to embed the platform in our school as painless, clear and as fluent as possible, and that was really appreciated."
Nick Russell, Head of Sixth Form
"Unifrog has been one of the best things we’ve invested in during my time as director of Post-16. It has had a massive impact on student motivation, on opening doors and making students aware of where they can go and raising their aspirations."
Chris Wilson, Director of Post-16
"Unifrog has given our students much more insight into their options, not limiting them to just a university search. The platform has definitely given students right across the ability spectrum raised aspirations and increased confidence in their choices."
Emma Shoreland, Director of Teaching & Learning Key Stage 5
St. Gregory’s Catholic School

Unifrog and the
Here's how Unifrog helps our partner schools and colleges
meet the Benchmarks or download as a PDF.
A stable careers programme
Careers Year Plan and teaching resources
Our Careers Year Plan is made up of excellent, adaptable teaching resources that are tailored to each year group, from Y7 to Y13. The plan makes it easy for you to develop a stable, whole-school/college careers programme.
Goal setting and review meetings
Your dedicated regional support team will meet with you to set the Goals you want to achieve with Unifrog and your CEIAG programme. They'll provide you with tailored guidance and resources, and meet with you reguarly to review progress against your Goals.
Parents and guardians have access to their own Unifrog accounts to explore Post-16 and Post-18 options, and read up-to-date information on topics from HE finance, apprenticeship levels and study abroad. You can share guides directly with them via the Unifrog platform, and generate a record of these interations with parents and guardians.
Learning from career and labour market information
Explore up-to-date national and local LMI
Students have access to up-to-date LMI data on over 1,000 career and subjects library profiles, allowing them to see - for any area of the UK - LMI like the most popular jobs, median salaries and even what jobs people in that area are more likely to do versus the national average.
Full range of options
Our Careers library and Know-how library comprise an enormous, easily searchable treasure trove of information about the full range of career pathways and progression routes available, so students understand where their education and training choices could take them.
Career and LMI student guides and teaching resources
Our Resources library contains sessions to support students with understanding LMI and career sector prospects. Used in conjunction with our Careers and Subjects library guides, students and parents can assess growth areas and make informed decisions about their next steps.
Addressing the needs of each pupil
Record, track, feedback
It's easy to assign students to particluar groups such as 'Pupil Premium' and 'SEND', then track the support and feedback they're given. Teachers can send students messages within the platform, providing feedback and support with their next steps. You can report on how well you support a particular type of student versus others.
Upload straight to Compass +
Our Interactions tool allows teachers to set students specific tasks, record interactions and map their activities against the Gatsby Benchmarks. This keeps the school's careers programme under one roof, and students have access to their careers record at all times. Careers Leaders then download the information from Unifrog and upload it directly to Compass+.
Personalised student journey
Each user has their own profile which they can access on any device, at any time. The platform holds the world's biggest database of Post 16 and Post 18 pathways and supports students with every stage of the progression process - from exploring their interests to learning about different jobs, to searching for live opportunities, crafting and submitting their actual applications.
Independent and impartial
Unifrog is committed to independence and impartiality. We show students everything, and the platform gives them the tools to make their own informed choices on all of the academic and vocational pathways available.
Destinations and alumni
Unifrog allows you to track your students' intentions and destinations data, as well as create an alumni database. Use this data to review your careers provision and inform continuous improvement of your programme for your students.
Linking curriculum learning to careers
Job profiles linked to subjects
The Subjects library provides career and pathway information for each subject, allowing students to look ahead and understand where their subjects of interest can lead.
Teaching resources linking careers to subject lessons
The Resources library has a dedicated section for resources which focus on linking curriculum learning to careers. Subject staff can deliver plug and play sessions exploring the relevance of their subjects to careers and pathways.
Classroom teachers can record CEIAG interactions
Interactions and activities can be easily recorded by all classroom teachers, supporting a truly whole school or college guidance programme.
Our Read, Watch, Listen tool contains thousands of handpicked books, podcasts, films and TED talks providing teachers with a bank of materials related to their subjects and careers related to the field. Students and teachers can sign up for subject or career specific webinars to learn more from experts within those sectors.
Encounters with employers and employees
Webinars and videos starring lead employers
Students have meaningful engagement with employers and employees during webinars and virtual careers fairs where they have the chance to ask questions and learn from their knowledge. Careers library profiles contain videos from employers and employees providing information on entry requirements through to daily activities within their roles.
Student - Employer networking
Through our Employer partnerships, students have the chance to contact employers directly to hear more about available opportunities. Students can apply for, and take part in, a range of employer lead activites from Skills Development workshops to 1:1 coaching programmes, providing meaningful encounters to support their progression into the world of work.
Track and target for particular encounters
Intuitive functionality for teachers to plan and track encounters with employers, and gather feedback from students on what they have learnt from these encounters. Track encounters via groups of students or individuals, and share opportunities of upcoming webinars or workshops with target students.
Teaching resources to prepare for encounters
Resources that support students to maximise encounters with employers and employees can be found in the Resources library. Utilise worksheets to prepare for careers fairs, deliver sessions on finding and applying for work experience, or engage students with interview preparation.
Comprehensive Apprenticeship database
The apprenticeships tool is the most complete database of UK apprenticeships in existence. Updated every 24 hours, it pulls together vacancies of all levels, from Traineeships to Degree Apprenticeships, and includes employer descriptions and links to apply for each live vacancy.
Experiences of workplaces
Work experience management
The Placements tool streamlines the admin behind the placements process. A series of forms, to be completed by specific people at specific times, from students' initial applications and employer confirmation of legal requirements, through to parental consent and relflection forms to make the whole process easier and more accessible.
Prepare for work experience
Access top-notch resources in the Resources library to help students prepare for their work experience, including idenitfying sectors of interest and how to behave in a work environment, and how to reflect of their experences.
Find work experience
Create your own employer database using the Placements tool. Review previous work placements, filter them by sector, the student feedback of those experiences and support current students with contacting those employers using our applications tools.
CV and Cover Letter writing
Easy-to-use CV building and competency-recording tools to help students craft impressive applications, alongside a Writing tool to curate cover letters for applications to work experience or part and full time employment.
Encounters with Further and Higher Education
Every opportunity, in one place
Our university and FE search tools ensure students can easily compare every academic and vocational opportunity acailable at Post 16 and Post 18, to inspire them with the wealth of opportunities available. Students can contact universities directly with our 'Put me in touch' buttons, sign up for open days and create shortlists to be discussed with parents/carers and teachers.
Track events and Baker Clause compliance
Teachers can add upcoming encounters with further and higher education to students' Unifrog calendars, send reminders before the events, then track and report on these interactions later on. This makes it easy to spot, for example, students with particular characteristics having fewer encounters with further or higher education than students with other characteristics, as well as reporting on evidencing your compliance with the Baker Clause.
Our Special opportunities tool makes it easy for students to find thousands of summer schools, scholarships and contextual offers, and is the only database of is kind. In terms of scholarships alone, the tool shows students £5M of opportunities that are otherwise tricky to find.
Interactive webinars with FE and uni reps
Students and teachers can access panel based webinars with FE and university representatives throughout the academic year. Webinars include application masterclasses to deep-dives into specific subjects. Students can opt in to hear more from the universities that are presenting.
Recording and tracking
The Interactions tool means you can quickly ensure all students receive the personal guidance they need. You can see how far along the progression process each student has got to (have all students in a particular year group completed a CV?), and you can see if students are missing a particular intervention, for example have all students had a 1:1 meeting with a qualified advisor?
1-1 resources and 24/7 impartial information
Unifrog also makes the logistics of delivering personal guidance a doddle. You can add 1:1 guidance sessions to students' calendars, send them reminders, and share pre and post-interview worksheets and materials to maximise their time with the advisor. Students have access to every Post 16 and Post 18 pathway at all times, ensuring they can research opportunities and reflect on the guidance and feedback they've received to date via their Unifrog profile.
Teacher - Parent teamwork
Using the parent/guardian summary email function, any upcoming or CEIAG interactions added to a student's profile can be emailed to the parent/guardian. This feature allows students and parents/guardians to be aware of the events and support available, and encourage discussions at home around careers and next steps.
Accounts for external advisers
External advisors can have their own Unifrog accounts, with permission from the schools and colleges they work with, and can add their 1:1 interactions with students, share guides and set tasks to be completed.
