Opportunities From Our Partners

 

Our partner organisations arrange a variety of different programmes separate from the Trust and are passionate about working with and supporting young people

 
LifeSkills Champion:   You can invite young people (aged 14-19) to become LifeSkills Champions – a unique opportunity which will support them to boost skills and gain practical experience, helping to give clout to their education or job applications and shine in interviews.  They’ll use an online Champions toolkit to complete three activities which focus on teaching LifeSkills content to other young people and, once verified, they’ll be awarded with an official LifeSkills created with Barclays digital badge. This can be shared on LinkedIn and other social platforms and will detail all the skills they’ve gained through becoming a Champion to grab the attention of potential employers.

New College of Humanities: Personal Statement Workshops   New College of Humanities are offering a Personal Statement workshop which can be delivered in a one session crash course or in a 5 week period with higher focus into detail.   First week:   In the first week, students will be introduced to the UCAS admissions process. The activities of the session will encourage students to think about what they want from their university experience - eg. one-to-one tutorials, out/in London, contact hours, reputation, courses. This will help students identify what best suits them in terms of their learning and the support provision they wish to have.   Second week:   Students will be introduced to personal statements and explore the most successful structure.  The task will be to compare and contrast an excellently written personal statement with poorly written ones. In the session, we will explore the ABC format for writing successful personal statements. At the end of the session, students will be given a task to identify any relevant experience, extra/super-curricular activities they may wish to include in their personal statement.   Third week:   The session will be used to explore wider reading that is related to the course that students wish to study at university. Our highly trained student ambassadors will be available to help students analyse the texts and help them draw out information student would like to incorporate in their personal statements. At the end of this session, students will have the building blocks that will be used to structure their statements. Students will be sent homework to create a draft for their statement to be reviewed in the next session.   Fourth week:   This week will be used to peer-review and the statements and students will be able to express any concerns about their statements. Further examples will be analysed. Students will have time to reflect on their constructive comments made and will have the opportunity to redraft their statements at home.   Fifth week:   This week will be 2 or 3 weeks after the last session. This will allow plenty of time for students to edit their personal statements before submitting it to us for final suggestions.
