Researching and reviewing the exciting new ‘What’s Next’ content for our school planners got us thinking that young people need somewhere that pulls together and builds on all of these useful resources.
We had so much to say about study options, student finance and youth opportunities that it wouldn’t all fit in our school planners!
This is where Oodles of Info! comes in…
What is Oodles?
Think of Oodles of Info! as a sort of one-stop-shop for young people. At the moment, our brand new website covers 3 main subject areas: youth opportunities, education options and student finance – with plans to expand to include even more beneficial content.
Oodles builds on the content in this year’s homework diaries, from exciting challenges and opportunities, to help with making important decisions about education and career options in school.
Written and designed entirely with students with in mind, this website is somewhere that young people can access quickly and easily, to help them as they start to think about their futures.
What’s Next? Planning for the future:
We’ve already added lots of new content to our What’s Next section because we know that students have so many questions about career options, study alternatives, entry requirements and much more.
Our live chat team are busy responding to the daily enquiries coming through from students so we know we’re onto a winner here!
The Opportunities area of the website showcases the range of competitions and challenges available to young people in the UK. We’ve also included work experience opportunities and youth programmes.
The opportunities available cover a variety of subjects and promote all sorts of skills, so students will be certainly be able to find something that appeals to their interests.
Money, money, money:
Getting young people interested in Finance isn’t always easy, which is why Oodles brings together handy money-saving tips that young people can directly apply to their own lives.
Students thinking about higher education will be able to find clear information on student finance, maintenance loans and the general costs of going to university.
See for yourself:
Why not encourage your pupils to take a look at the site and see if we’re getting it right? Or have a look around yourself!
We’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
