Enriching experiences

This month has been a busy one with trips to Selwyn College, University of Cambridge for Year 11 and Year 12 aspiring applicants. Students loved the experience; from trying on gowns, to Q&A sessions with undergraduates, campus tours and a little bit of shopping for good measure - they got a great insight into what will be on offer for them. We've also been to the University of Huddersfield with Year 13 students who have completed the Progression Module; earning themselves 12 UCAS points should they wish to apply to the University of Bradford, Huddersfield or Leeds Trinity University. 


Personalised aspirational CEIAG remains a priority, at the core of the support we provide. We launched multiple personalised progression programmes for the students; Zero Gravity for Russell Group applicants, The Social Mobility Foundation for work experience, mentoring, and internships with some of the biggest global partners in Law, Medicine, Business, and the Arts. We've also partnered with UpLearn, an online platform combining AI, personalised gap work, and tutorials for all students in Year 12 and 13 studying Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. In the first five days alone students have logged a massive 145 extra hours of learning. We can't wait to see the impact on their final outcomes in August this year and next. 


In order to support our Medics, Dentists, Oxbridge, and competitive courses stream, we are happy to announce our ‘Aspiration Wednesday’ tutorials where colleagues from different disciplines will be supporting with wider guided supra-curricular material and admission tests support.
