We are pleased and proud to announce that 70 of our Year 13 students have passed the Progression Module. This is a Higher Education preparation programme available to all sixth form college students and includes four areas of study: You and Your Career, Exploring Your Future, Managing Your Money and Marketing Yourself.
The Module provides wide-ranging benefits for students; assisting them with research, decision-making and applications to university or work, as well as acquiring and developing new skills including research, self-reflection and presentation skills. The students have completed various tasks including; career planning, CV preparation, HE and employment finance budget planner and decision-making and mock interviews to help them plan their futures. Much of the work for this was completed during lockdown, which makes this an even greater achievement.
Students also receive formal recognition for their work by way of 12 UCAS points, which is recognised by three of our local universities; the University of Huddersfield, Leeds Beckett University and Leeds Trinity University. Furthermore, the University of Huddersfield guarantees interviews, auditions or offers to all Progression Module students who have successfully completed the programme and who meet the published academic and non-academic entry requirements.
Some feedback from students:
“The progression module really helped me in deciding what subject I am going to choose for a degree. It also helped me understand finances better.”
“It’s really something that will benefit you, no matter what university you decide to go to, as all require a personal statement. It makes it easier when you're in Y13 as you don't need to stress about the personal statement and gathering all the information, so you can focus entirely on your studies. The workload may be heavy, but when you attain those 12 points that can serve your future you will be thankful that you spent your time on this module.”
