Be College Ready – Y11 Workshop

Event Fallback Image

An informative and interactive workshop which helps Y11 learners get the information they need so they are fully prepared for life after school. The friendly format eases any anxieties that learners may have in making a successful transition from school.

Whether they are going to sixth form / college or moving into an apprenticeship, they’ll get handy info covering:

  • GCSE Results Day
  • Tips for your first week including travel
  • Managing your free time
  • Money saving tips
  • Opportunity to ask any questions

GM Higher delivered this effective workshop to over 31 schools in 2020/21 to approx. 3386 learners.

81% of learners, following the workshop, agreed that they now know more about how sixth form / college is different to school.

Positive feedback included, enjoying:

“Discussing about how to spend free periods and how to save money”

“Asking questions and seeing the real side of college life”

“Learning about their personal experiences of college and learning that it is okay to be scared”

“Thank you so much for doing this session and making me quite confident when I start college for the first time”

GM Higher will need to record participation of learners in line with our funding requirements, so we will ask you to provide a register.
