Lesson plan

This lesson plan uses the UCAS Hub to help your students develop a plan for writing their UCAS personal statement and show them how this can also be used for job and apprenticeship applications.

It has been designed to be delivered as either a 20 minute, 40 minute or hour-long activity, depending on your time constraints.

The lesson plan includes the following:

  • the lesson objective
  • suggested lesson activities and their associated student outcomes
  • guidance and examples to use with the activities
  • a summary of Gatsby Benchmarks and CDI Framework skills the lesson covers

We have also provided PowerPoint slides and student workbooks to be used in the lesson. All files are editable, allowing you to use the lesson plan as a starting point and amend it as you wish.
