I’ll leave this for the boss to tell you about…

Thanks Sam.

Over the term-long project each child will have the opportunity to take part in 4 school-based workshops, the first three will last for about 2 hours each. The first is on self-belief and finding your talent. The second is about finding out about different jobs and careers, and the third focuses on how we get there, what qualifications you need and where you can get them.

The fourth one is my favourite because this is when you are invited into school to work with your child. They will be showing you some of the games and activities they have been doing as part of Higher Futures 4U, and the best bit is that you don’t have to have any previous knowledge of Higher Futures 4U, as your child will be doing all of the activities with you.

They will then go on 3 different educational visits. One of these will be to a local university, where they will meet current students while having a tour of the campus; finding more out about university life from studying to socialising! As part of the trip they will also take part in a university lecture!

A visit to a World of Work business will allow the children to learn about a range of jobs within a company and meet people who are currently doing those jobs. They will also be getting some hands-on experiences of their roles.

Finally there is a graduation for the children to celebrate the completion of the Higher Futures 4U project.

“I really liked it. It was great because I learned to believe in myself.”
