Realising the potential of Children in Care

Canterbury Christ Church University LAC Summer School 2018

Posted on by Judy Molyneux

Students are invited to attend the looked after children non-residential Summer School taking place from the 13th to 14th August 2018 at Canterbury Christ Church University campus. As you may be aware the number of students applying to university, who have come from a care background, is very low and this event aims to offer students a chance to come and experience University life in full.

During the event attendees will take part in fun and educational sessions including Dynamic Dialogue, the completion of a Degree in a Day programme and a scavenger hunt on our Canterbury campus. Students will also learn about the benefits of Higher Education.

All costs of the summer school are met by CCCU, and transport to and from the event will be provided.

For applicants who have an interest but no experience of University education, the Summer School aims to increase both social and academic confidence; heighten aspirations to attend University/Higher Education, contribute to social and emotional wellbeing, and improve attainment in a variety of subject areas. This experience will also make the attendees a more appealing candidate to University, should they wish to apply in the future.

Eligible students from years 9-12 may apply by completing the online booking form before the 2nd of July deadline.
