How it works
We’ve designed our courses to be as flexible as possible to cater to the different needs of students and schools. As a result, each of our seven topics are built into a number of smaller modules, which can be easily modified into customised seminars ranging from 40 minutes to 2 hours in length.
Designed for classes or entire year groups, each seminar is a memorable combination of stories, videos, discussions and individual and group activities, ensuring each and every minute is as equally informative as it is engaging.
All of our courses can be run as seminars for any year group, though we find that some courses are more appropriate for some ages than others. For example, our 'Careers' class works best with Year 11 or 12 as they're more focused on making decisions for life after school. We're happy to recommend courses based on the needs of your students.
We won’t just leave you after a seminar and never see you again. With each course scheduled, you’ll also receive:
An initial meeting to understand the needs of your school and discuss focus topics for your students.
Worksheets and activities for students during the seminar, and Question time at the end.
Resource pack for teachers with follow up activities and content from the seminar.
Engaging resources for students to continue their learning journey, made up of the best content from the digital world of podcasts, apps, blogs, YouTube, TED Talks and more.
What will we need
All we need is a space with a projector or a wall to project onto - a common room would be perfect. We’ll bring student worksheets, some feedback cards, and (if required) our own projector. If students have access to laptops or tablets, they can bring them to the seminar as we’ll direct them to a few websites as well as showing them on the projector.
Future Skills Intensive
We've also developed a Future Skills Intensive, which combines all the topics from each seminar into a 7 week course designed to build critical skills for senior students beginning to think about life after school.
