Transcript of "AoC Beacon Awards 2014-15 prospectus - UCAS Award for Careers Guidance"

  1. 1. The Awards 10 UCAS Progress is delighted to be sponsoring this award – recognising excellence in impartial careers education, advice and guidance for young people. UCAS Progress interacts with colleges, schools and apprenticeship providers across the country and understands the challenges faced by them in providing comprehensive and impartial information. ucasprogress.com provides information and guidance online, and a searchable database of opportunities for young people; but this is just one step in providing young people with the information they need for them to make informed decisions after GCSEs. We work with colleges, schools and employers to provide a trusted and comprehensive national resource for post-16 study and work-based learning; and we recognise that, in addition to the wider support they are given at a local level, this is key to ensuring successful progression.
