Guidance for Tutors and Coaches
Guidance for tutors and coaches
We understand that for many staff who support students through the UCAS process, progression and guidance is not – or has only recently become – a central part of their role in school or college. We want to use our expertise and resources to ensure you are confident in your role in the UCAS process (such as writing references) and in how to clearly communicate key messages to your students (such as student finance and how to write an exceptional personal statement).
Depending on availability and your location, these talks can be delivered at your school or college as part of team meetings or inset days.
UCAS process and personal statements
We will demonstrate how we use your UCAS references so that you are able to write references that will stand out from the crowd. We can also provide insight into how to support students through the UCAS process and ensure your references and their personal statements complement each other.
The process of drafting, refining and submitting UCAS personal statements is often the most daunting part of the UCAS process for students and staff alike. Our team has particular expertise in communicating the ideal structure and content of personal statements so that they are clear and focused.
We really look forward to Leeds Beckett outreach staff coming into college, whether it’s to work with staff or students. Their no-nonsense approach to higher education and personal statement development has had a huge impact on the quality of our students’ applications to university and the way we as staff promote and take our students through their higher education choices and UCAS entry.Kit Wright, UCAS Co-ordinator, Caedmon College Whitby
