Spalding Grammar School

Careers Education

At Spalding Grammar School we are committed to providing a complete and comprehensive careers education to our students. We feel it is vitally important that every student accesses education, information, advice and guidance to ensure they have the necessary skills to access the career path they eventually choose.

We have invested in Unifrog, a careers platform which brings into one place every undergraduate university course, apprenticeship, and college course in the UK, as well as other opportunities, such as School Leaver Programmes, MOOCs and every college at Oxford and Cambridge. This make it easy for students to compare and choose the best university courses, apprenticeships or further education courses for them. They can also explore exciting opportunities further afield by looking at English taught undergraduate programmes available in Europe and the USA.  Additionally, the platform helps students successfully apply for these opportunities by writing their personal statement, applications and CVs and guiding them through the process, allowing teachers to give live feedback.

The School provides opportunities for parents to access guidance on careers through the options processes. There is also the opportunity for parents to access UNIFROG our careers platform as a student.
