It’s a new year and a new term - a time for new timetables, new textbooks and soon, new technology. The original Skills Route tool has been through an evolution over the last few months and a new version will be available in October 2016 - hopefully just in time to help Year 11 students find their ideal course combinations and places to study.
We will announce the launch of these tools in mid-October via our newsletter and social media accounts. If you don’t already subscribe, follow us on twitter here or sign up to receive our newsletter here.
A preview of the new tools...
Not content with one Skills Route tool, we have taken feedback from students and teachers on board and developed two new ones.
1 Skills Route PLAN helps students explore all the course options that are available for them to study after GCSEs. Using this online tool they can learn about and select courses that reflect their interests, ambitions and academic ability.
2 Skills Route FIND brings together lots of information into one place. The simple website shows a student all the places where they can study locally and key information to help them shortlist options and apply.
