UCAS offers help with post-16 choices


A new UCAS website is helping students to find and apply for a range of post-16 courses including BTECs, A levels and Apprenticeships.

UCAS Progress allows students to search for courses across their area and has been compiled by the university admissions body in conjunction with local providers.

Students can “save” courses that appeal to them, work on their application in stages online, and then track its progress once it has been submitted.

Searching and map views are based on location and the distance that the learner is willing to travel. The Apply function, meanwhile, enables students to build profiles, return to complete applications, and use the communication tool to speak with providers to arrange interviews.

Gina Bradbury, head of UCAS Progress, said: “While currently focusing on the benefits of using UCAS Progress for key stage 5 choices, we are excited about the benefits to 11 to 16 and 11 to 18 institutions of using (it) to manage internal applications at key
stage 4.”

UCAS Progress Search and Apply is also aimed at allowing schools to track participation for destination data and demonstrate provision of independent, impartial careers guidance.
