    About the event

    Our team can provide a series of talks and workshops on the benefits of Higher Education and the routes into specific subjects. We will provide students with an understanding of the skills, attributes and benefits gained from studying at Higher Education level. Students will learn about the different training routes and career pathways for each subject as well as opportunities available during their studies. They will also get the chance to hear first hand experiences from a subject-specific Student Ambassador. Information, advice and guidance will also be given to students on what they need to study at level 3 to help them make informed decisions on their next step.

    We can also provide a series of subject specific talks where students can find out about the benefits of studying a particular subject area. These include:

    • Higher education and routes into specific subjects
    • Why Humanities?
    • Why study a Creative Arts degree?
    • Why Business?
    • Why Built Environment?
    • Routes into Teaching
    • Routes into Engineering
    • Healthcare choices

    Aims include:

    • To improve students’ attainment in level 2 subjects
    • To increase students’ confidence at school
    • To develop students’ understanding of different routes available to study at Higher Education level and the career pathways they could embark on after graduation
    • To develop students’ knowledge and awareness of the benefits of higher education
    • To raise the aspirations of students in the local community.
