Year 9 

What opportunities are out there for me?

By the time you reach Year 9 you will be ready to take some more responsibility. You should start thinking about your WEX placement for next year even now. There is a world of opportunity out there to explore, and there’s something for everyone. Be ambitious and aim high!

What am I interested in? What am I good at? What is my passion? Where are the opportunities that best fit my skillset, and how do I set about finding them?

Finding the answer to these questions will require some quality research, networking skills, and a good measure of perseverance.

The time you spend on Unifrog will come into its own here.
