Full Event Details:
It has been repeatedly identified that a lack of cultural capital is a barrier to young people accessing Higher Education and making informed and aspirational decisions about their educational and employment future. The last 18 months has seen Year 12 students facing a great deal of adversity having seen through almost the entirety of their GCSE’s in lockdown. This is an opportunity to give something back to this group and support them to broaden their experiences of Universities and potentially another City before they embark on their final year of school. This residential will expose them with opportunities to meet professionals from elite careers, travel to a new city and experience a range of cultural experiences and experience what it’s like to study at a UK university. By meeting students from other schools across the region, and living on University accommodation, students will also develop their independence and build their confidence to step out of their comfort zone and take new opportunities. This will also be a taster of meeting new people from other schools as if it were the first few weeks of University, working together to create a team, overcome challenges and have fun!
Residential from 15th July - 17th July
10.00 (15th) – 4.00pm (17th)
