University event offered by Edge Hill University

Event Summary:

This programme of talks offers parents and carers of pre-16 students impartial advice and guidance on areas relating to Higher Education, and how they can support their child in school towards making choices in the future.

Full Event Details:

All talks last approximately 30 minutes and can be delivered at parents’ evenings, GCSE information evenings, or at other school events.

Each presentation can be tailored to the needs of the audience and takes into account the year group students are currently studying in, as well as relevant local and national employability information.

Current presentation topics include:

Looking to the Future – Why Higher Education?
The content of this presentation looks at how the path secondary school students choose to take will affect their future education and life choices. The presentation offers parents and carers advice and guidance about how to support their child through each stage of secondary school in relation to broadening their option choices, and how this may in turn lead to Higher Education and their child’s future employability.

Money Matters and HE
This talk aims to dispel myths relating to the costs of HE, as well as the benefits HE can provide in relation to employability and earnings (using EHU alumni case studies for illustration). The presentation also offers guidance in relation to financial support that students can receive whilst in Higher Education and how parents/carers can support their child’s knowledge of the area.

STEM subjects and employability
This presentation is designed to support parents’ and carers’ awareness of STEM, what it is and how it is linked to their child’s education and future life choices. The talk offers parents information relating to what STEM looks like in Higher Education and employment, as well as advice and guidance about how to support their child regarding the choices surrounding STEM subjects.

Student Support and HE
This content of this presentation looks at the benefits that Higher Education can offer all students, as well as the wide variety of support facilities that students can access whilst studying in Higher Education. The talk will outline the areas of student support available in HE, as well as discuss how parents and carers can encourage and support their children during secondary education in order to prepare them for life after school.
