Visits to Your School and CPD

Visits to Your School and CPD

We are as committed as ever to supporting you and your students throughout their progression to Higher Education but things may look a little different this academic year.

In-School and Online Sessions

We are currently taking bookings for the next academic year to deliver sessions in schools and colleges and online. 

During these challenging times we, like many others, have had to change the way that we are working. We are remaining as flexible as possible in our approach to working with schools and colleges and have a wide range of content for all year groups that we can deliver to you remotely on a platform that suits you and your school.

If you would prefer us to visit in person then we are looking at these requests on a case by case basis. We will discuss your needs with you alongside your individual school protocols and procedures to decide the best way to support your students. We won’t be able to bring resources into schools and colleges, so the content we offer in person may be different from that available previously and some sessions will not be available.

To maximise our ability to support both you and your students over the coming year we have developed a specific support programme for Year 12 & 13. This has been designed take your students through the full application cycle with our Outreach Ambassadors delivering session at key points throughout the year. Each online session is 15 minutes long and can be delivered live or pre-recorded with a live Q&A, fitting easily into tutorials or PSHE sessions. After each session we will send a follow up email with links to further resources and information on the topic for you to send on to your students to view at their leisure. All sessions will be linked to Gatsby Benchmarks, PSHE Associations and National Curriculum.
