Featuring a range of resources including event activities, posters, and videos to help you and your students get the most out of UCAS/Discovery.

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.

Step 1 – Book your place

Students, parents and guardians, yourself and colleagues, everyone is welcome to attend, but they’ll need to register individually to get the best experience and access to features like live messenger chat with exhibitors and on-demand content.

Send reminders to your students

Step 2 – Get ready

Introduce your students to UCAS/Discovery and get them one step ahead with our pre-event activities.

Step 3 – Join the live event

A 'Discover your options' zone to get your students thinking, a live lounge packed full of interactive sessions, the chance to meet universities and colleges, or employers and apprenticeship providers, and Q&As with current students and apprentices…

With so much on offer, we’ve created a checklist and series of activities for you to engage the entire class, or for your students to takeaway for self-led study.

Step 4 – Take time to reflect

Once your students have attended UCAS/Discovery, use our post-event activities to help them take in everything they’ve learnt and create an action plan for their next steps.
