The UCAS/Discovery toolkit aims to help your students explore uni, apprenticeships, careers and all kinds of possibilities after school or college. More importantly, it focuses on helping them discover what’s important to them and their future, and gives them the information and advice they need to keep moving forward with their future plans. I hope you and your students find the resources below both useful and enjoyable.
