AGCAS input into new OfS resource

08 July 2019

AGCAS has been working with the IAG and Skills Team at the Office for Students to provide expert advice into the development of a new resource.

AGCAS members have reviewed the content architecture of a new website, which will launch in beta in September. The website will replace Unistats and aims to include more guidance to support informed-decision making about entering HE.

Key points raised by AGCAS members for consideration by OfS include:

  • Using relevant terminology, appropriate to all prospective entrants (including school leavers and mature students)
  • Demistifying the process for entering and progressing in HE, particularly for those students who do not have access to pre-entry IAG
  • Communicating the wider benefits of going to university
  • Contextualising employment outcomes and earnings
  • Highlighting non-linear career paths
