Lunchtime Learning for School and College colleagues

How to deliver meaningful online university guidance events for your school or college (and meet Gatsby Benchmark 7 whilst doing so)

This free 45-minute event is for school and college colleagues (including careers colleagues, Heads of Year and Senior Leadership teams) who are interested in finding out more about the provision of university guidance in the online environment.

Sessions will focus on Gatsby Benchmark 7, the different types of online events on offer for schools, as well as an opportunity to hear more about how other schools have approached the delivery of effective university guidance.

Delivered as a webinar, only the UniTasterDays event host and event speakers will be visible to participants during the event. You will not need a webcam or a microphone – but there will be a typed Q & A running throughout. A keyboard would therefore be handy!
