This session can be delivered to large groups with a presenter style structure or to smaller groups as an interactive workshop. This will provide a fantastic knowledge base for students – and the interactive nature will ensure students have lots of fun along the way!
Full Event Details:
The session includes an introduction to university courses nationally, why students may wish to consider university, personal statements, the UCAS application process and student fees and finance. You may think it is too early for a session like this - we guarantee it isn't!
Where booked for smaller groups, the content includes relevant and interactive games and group exercises using interactive clickers (with prizes)!
The sessions are fully evaluated. This data can be used as an evidence base in terms of the impact of this intervention for school improvement purposes and Ofsted inspections.
A press release can also be sent to the local press after each session, so schools potentially benefit from great publicity as well
