Enrichment

Enrichment Programme

The year 12 Enrichment Programme is held every Wednesday afternoon and has been specially designed to support our students at this very important stage in their lives.  Each half-term has a specific focus helping to prepare students for university life, the world of work and to feel safe, secure and ready to face the challenges of adult life:-

  • Successful 6th Form Transition
  • Employ Me!
  • Staying Safe and Secure
  • Happy, Healthy Relationships
  • Independent Living

Below are just some of the organisations that have led workshops as part of our 6th Form Enrichment Programme.

Speed Networking Event

We are particularly proud of our Speed Networking Event which was held for the fourth year in 2014. This is co-ordinated by and led with our Careers and Enterprise Co-ordinator Mrs Winter and involves students ‘hot seating’ for three minutes with representatives from different companies.  Students are prepared for the event in Enrichment Programme workshops on public speaking and networking.  In 2013 Mrs Winter successfully arranged for over seventy organisations and business to participate and many students benefited from gaining part-time work, work placements, or work shadowing opportunities as a result.  Students have also benefited from the skills and confidence gained when attending job and university interviews.
