Year 10 Study Conference

The Year 10 Study Conference will be a mix of recorded subject sessions and live delivery, and include live and bespoke study skills sessions for your students provided by MADE training.

There will be the opportunity for your students to ask questions to current university students at the end of the day. The activities are designed so that schools can either come off timetable for a whole day, or you can access the resources at your own speed across a one week window. 

About the event

Our new virtual Study Conference combines sample sessions in the 3 core GCSE subjects, and other subjects they could study at A Level and university, motivating students across the day where their studies could take them after their GCSEs.

In the morning, the focus is on core GCSE subjects, with sessions in English, Maths and Science that both boost confidence and give a taste of learning at university level (but accessible for all!).

Then, in an interactive live session, students will build a bank of revision tips and strategies delivered in conjunction with the award-winning ‘MADE Training’.

In the afternoon students have the chance to explore sessions on university subjects of their own choice via a range of recorded sessions, exploring linked job opportunities as they go.

At the end of the day, students will have a chance to submit questions to current Oxford Brookes students in a live Q+A session.

The aim across the day as a whole is to raise students attainment and motivation through highlighting the importance of GCSE qualifications.

Printed resources for each of your students will be sent out in advance of the study conference, free of charge - prepared and sent via covid-secure methods.

All activities will also be available asynchronously, other than the live sessions mentioned.

Aims include:

  • To improve students’ attainment in Science, Maths and English
  • To increase students’ confidence at school
  • To develop students’ study skills and capacity for academic attainment
  • To develop students’ knowledge and awareness of the benefits of higher education
  • To raise the aspirations of students in the local community.
