There are plenty of things you can do to assist your students during this crucial time in their lives.

By promoting self-reflection, you’ll encourage your students to consider their strengths and weaknesses, their likes and dislikes and their aspirations. All of this will enable them to start making confident decisions about their future.

Ensure that they have access to the right resources (here is a good place to start!). This could include anything from ordering a prospectus to arranging a class visit to a local open day.

Be aware of important deadlines and make sure that your students are working towards them. Preparation is key, and the application process can be long and at times stressful. By scheduling regular catch-ups, tutorials or workshops, you can make sure they stay on track, and they’ll feel supported, knowing that you’re there for them every step of the way.

As their teacher, you may also be asked to provide their academic reference for their UCAS application, which you can learn more about here.
