Realising the potential of Children in Care

Canterbury Christ Church University Easter School for CiC - 16th to 18th April

Posted on by Raicheal Gallagher

During the event attendees will take part in fun and educational sessions including our new events; Degree in a Day and Growth Mindset. During the Easter School, students will be taken on a fun and educational trip to Wingham Wildlife Park. They will also attend a talk led by a health and wellbeing representative about the support available for care leavers at university. All costs of the Easter 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 Easter 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 year 9 and upwards may apply.

If you know of any students who would like to attend, could you pass on these details to them and ask them to contact me, or they can get in touch via yourself if this is easier. Alternatively, I am accepting applications from now and would be happy to receive these.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind regards,
