Where Can Your Subjects Take You?

Forest Hill School is committed to providing students with high quality Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) regarding further education, higher education, apprenticeships and careers.

Students are given advice and help with their decision making at every stage of their school life.

Unifrog

Unifrog is a careers and enrichment resource that Forest Hill School uses to further support our students in personal development and career exploration. The Unifrog resources provide a one-stop-shop giving students access to explore over 500 different career options. This platform is designed to:

  • Help students to understand their strengths and weakness
  • Identify students’ interests and link them to a range of career pathways
  • Offer bespoke talks, interviews and seminars on a wide range of professions

Every student has an individual login to Unifrog. All teaching staff also have a Unifrog account so that they can view the engagement of students.

There is an interests profile quiz for students in Years 7-9 to help them first understand their strengths and weaknesses in order to suggest possible career choices they may be suited to.

For students in Years 10-13, there is a personality profile quiz to help them understand how their interests may have multiple links to a wide range of professions. Students can then use integrated careers library to explore any given career.
