Year 10 Expo
In order to make decisions about their future, students need clear and current information. To help prepare students ahead of choosing their options at Key Stage 5, AccessHE will be running a Year 10 Expo event on Wednesday 27 April 2016. The aim of the event is to help students make well-informed choices regarding Post 16 study and increase their understanding of higher education. Please see this draft programme.
This event will provide your Year 10 students who have the potential to progress onto higher education (HE) with the chance to find out more about the opportunities available to them Post 16 and at a higher education level.
The expo will encourage students to think about:
- the subjects they want to study
- how their choices Post 16 could have an impact on the options available to them at an HE level
- if they want to go to university
- the cost of higher education
Students will also have a valuable opportunity to quiz current students about their higher education experience.
AccessHE is the pan-London organisation that aims to support the progression of under-represented groups to higher education (HE). This includes those students who are the first generation in their family to enter HE, students from areas of low participation to HE, those in local authority care and disabled students. This event is particularly targeted at students from these backgrounds and we encourage you to consider your pupil premium students when selecting students to attend the event.
Attendance for students is FREE. This event is offered as part of the AccessHE School and College Offer which is free for 2015/16 as a result of the funding AccessHE is receiving through the HEFCE National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) scheme.
