Teacher and Adviser Focus Week

Over 300 advisers joined us for our first ever Teacher and Adviser Focus Week. Thank you to everyone who took part in web chats, webinars and live events. If you missed our webinars it’s not too late – you can download the recording now!

Personal Statement Advice

We understand how daunting it can be for your students when set with the task of writing their personal statements. This stage can be the hardest part of the application process, especially when faced with a blank page. Our personal statement tool will help your students think about what to include in their personal statement, and how to structure it. It also counts how many characters they’ve used, so it’s easy to see when they’re close to that 4,000 character limit.

Adviser Track and Reporting

Our range of reports and tools give education professionals the insight needed to help students take their next step. Adviser Track 2017 and part one of the Progression Report are now available. Find out more.

Qualification Provision Survey

To develop a greater understanding of qualification provision, and the underlying rationale, covering both academic and vocational qualifications, UCAS has just launched a qualification provision survey which we invite you to take part in.

Don’t miss our range of useful resources, including a qualification timeline and a list of qualification reform statements from higher education providers. Find out more.

The Annual Conference for Teachers and Advisers

It’s not too late to book your place at The Annual Conference for Teachers and Advisers in London, 30 – 31 January 2017. This two-day event is a fantastic opportunity to discover how you can help improve your students’ chances of success, and to explore the key issues affecting post-18 progression.
