Welcome to Personal Development


Unifrog is an integral part of our careers program at The Garibaldi School. It is an extremely useful platform that all of our students have access to, from Year 7 right up to Sixth Form. Unifrog offers a plethora of information, ranging from apprenticeships, current labour market information, university courses, CV writing, personal statement writing and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).

We encourage all of our students to make use of Unifrog on a regular basis, and this will be supported by our in school careers provision.
