Digital post-16 prospectus and application solution

Start to Apply is a platform that helps students to search and apply for post-16 education, training and employment opportunities.

Part of the Start family of digital products, Start to Apply offers schools a resource to help students to make a successful transition to their next stage of education, whilst staying in complete control by supporting and tracking applications at every stage of the process.

For providers of post-16 education and training including apprenticeships, the platform can be used to list courses and opportunities, receive and manage applications. It’s designed to be inclusive, allowing providers to manage the application process entirely on the platform or simply export and import the data for their own systems.

For more information about how to get involved, please contact Tracy Waud at Leeds City Council via
