Ucas tutor training mod 6

  1. 1. Inspired Futures (or Life After Leigh)
  2. 2. “A-level students must be told the whole truth about the value of a degree” 16 Aug 2012 Telegraph “When [the government] trebled the cap on university fees, [they] justified this by arguing a university degree will “on average boost your earnings by £100,000 over a lifetime”. That would justify the average £40,000 of debt...imply[ing] disadvantage for those who give university a miss.”
  3. 3. “A-level students must be told the whole truth about the value of a degree” 16 Aug 2012 Telegraph “There is something especially scandalous about young people who have been sold a vision of graduate life, only to find it was a piece of spin to sweeten the bitter pill of student loans. The mis- selling of higher education is one of the least remarked-upon scandals of our time.”
  4. 4. “A-level students must be told the whole truth about the value of a degree” 16 Aug 2012 Telegraph Government released a research paper that spelt it out. For doctors and dentists, a degree is a prerequisite. They will earn £400,000 more over a lifetime, but for students admitted to less rigorous degrees, the premium quickly diminishes...History and Philosophy a paltry £35 a year more than non-graduates a degree in “Creative Arts” £15,000 less over a lifetime than those who start work aged 18.
  5. 5. “A-level students must be told the whole truth about the value of a degree” 16 Aug 2012 Telegraph “If a degree is no guarantee of success in modern Britain, then the lack of one is no guarantee of failure. For those whose A-level results have precluded university, there is still all to play for.”

DoLP16 notifies Tutor & Subject Teachers for reference request 4. Subject Teachers write Reference, DoLP16 send to Tutor who keeps a record 5. Applicant marks online application as ‘complete’ 6.

  14. 14. UCAS Online Application Process Stage 2: Half Term to November 15th 1. Tutor shapes 3 subject paragraphs & Top & Tails the reference. Marks as complete 2.

  15. 15. Personal Statement • Does it reflect their grade profile? • Are they listing skills and experiences of LINKING them to relevance? • Is it personal - can you recognise them? • Is there evidence they know why they are studying this - what it will lead to, what it entails? • What can they do in the time remaining?
  16. 16. Communication & Tracking • Applicants must complete the ‘Reference Request’ online form to start the process - remind them • Once I have passed them to you, Tutor approaches the Subject Teachers to complete the Reference Form • Between us we need to keep a record of which teachers have written and sent Subject References and which have not.
