This workshop for year 10 or year 11 students addresses (and avoids) the potential situation where a student’s option choices made previously may result in them not being able to study the degree subject they’re most interested in.
Full Event Details:
This includes activities looking at what facilitating subject are, university courses requiring specific A Level (or equivalent) choices and potential subject combinations matched to each person’s individual learning style.
It suits both students with a clear idea of higher education choices, and those who simply haven’t got a clue!
Group size: 5 - 35
Duration: 45 minutes (without learning style exercise) or 1 hour (with exercise)
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
