Learners will explore future pathways that
align with their passions and subjects of
interest. This practical workshop session aims
to motivate learners to consider educational
progression by linking their own skills and
interests to future career options. It will also
make students aware of the support available
to them to reach their goals.

In this workshop, learners will listen to one
of our Graduate Intern’s journey into and
through higher education. This includes how
our Graduate Interns chose what to study,
where to study and any other challenges they
overcame. There is a discussion of common
myths associated with higher education and
an opportunity for learners to discuss any
concerns or worries they may have about HE.
Learners will also be introduced to student
finance and UCAS and the application process
for apprenticeships

The catch up reading programme is offered
to learners in Year 7, with groups of 6 learners.
The programme is an intensive 6-week
reading programme, with 2 sessions weekly,
each lasting approx. 45 minutes. The aim of
these sessions is to help increase their reading
age to the level they’re expected to be. In
these sessions learners will work through
a series of books with activities and group
discussions to support their comprehension
and literacy skills. The programme is delivered
by Graduate Interns, and we are currently
adapting our materials to address the needs
of the group.
