"The Career Development Institute is delighted to support the 2021-22 UniTasterDays Teachers’ Guide to University brochure. After the past two years, high quality careers information, advice and guidance is more important than ever to help young people navigate their way through the many options and into their next stage of learning. This is one of the many great resources provided by UniTasterDays, to support schools and colleges with their university links."
David Morgan - Chief Executive, The Career Development Institute
"Decisions about studying at University are ever more critical, given the financial as well as the personal investment students are required to make. Teachers and Year Tutors are a vital source of information and advice for young people and the Teachers’ Guide to University brochure is a valuable resource in ensuring students are well equipped for their choice of where and what to study."
Kieran Gordon MBE - Executive Director, Careers England.
"With expert contributions from over 35 providers of higher education, the Guide provides the essential facts about the admissions process and highlights the thoroughgoing, professional liaison and support on offer that school and college staff need to know in order to enable your pupils and students to make the right choices.
This Guide sets out the necessary underpinning knowledge for their decision-making and application and describes how best to take up the diverse offers of events and workshops to support applications. The Guide also highlights the extra help available from school liaison and outreach staff for pupils and students who might be socially disadvantaged, disabled or facing other barriers to success and think that "university is not for me." As examples, this help may include specifically targeted events, and bespoke bursaries for care leavers.
At a time when the sheer amount of choice can be bewildering and the widespread effects of the pandemic confusing, the information and advice in this comprehensive Guide sets out how you can work with universities and colleges and do your best for all your students."
