Indigo Careers Education Bursary

New bursary fund to support careers education in schools

Trotman have been supporting students in making their career and uni choices for more than 50 years. Our popular resources include HEAP, the market-leading guide to uni degree course offers, the Careers directory and The Careers Leader Handbook.

This wealth of information is what powers Indigo – Trotman’s new careers and uni choice digital platform for schools. Kept up to date online, and brought to life with new digital functionality and time-saving teacher tools, students can now search, filter and explore hundreds of career paths and courses.

The newly-launched Indigo Careers Education Bursary offers a small number of schools the chance to access Indigo for free – as part of our commitment to support wider access to careers resources for all students.

How to apply

To apply for the bursary scheme and receive free 2-year access to Indigo Light Careers and Unis modules for your whole school (maximum 30 users at one time), then please complete your details in this simple form by the closing date of 26th June 2020.

There are limited places available on this year’s scheme, and only a short window for applications – so make sure to apply soon. We will notify all successful bursary schools by the 3rd July 2020 and their Indigo Light subscription will run through until 31st July 2022.

There are no strings – we only ask that you make active use of the site.
