Supporting Students to progress to Higher Education Event


To be held on Tuesday 21st October 2008
10.00-3.15pm at the Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, Bristol.
Aimhigher West Area Partnership and the Western Vocational Lifelong Learning Network (WVLLN) are delighted to publicise the forthcoming FREE one day event. This event will give essential tools and techniques necessary to support students when they choose to apply for higher education.
For those of you who are the main point of contact with students you will often be asked for your professional advice and guidance on going to higher education: this is your chance to find out the latest information from people working in higher education. This will also be the ideal opportunity to meet up with colleagues and share ideas and experiences.
There will be professional information advice and guidance from a team of admissions tutors to help you prepare your students for entry into higher education. The day is free and lunch is included.

Workshops and presentations will include:

  • Demystifying the UCAS application process
  • Interviews, portfolios and auditions
  • Helping students to write excellent personal statements
  • Progression agreements, giving vocational students an equal chance
  • References, writing in support of your students
