HEART Staff asked 2 years ago

Dear Colleagues,

Trinity Academy Halifax have requested a Courses Carousel Activity for their Year 7 students (I am aware this is usually aimed at students from Year 9, but the school feels it will benefit their Year 7s as they move into Year 8).

The year group is comprised of 300 students, and it is therefore likely that this would need to run over 2 days.

Times and details of the venue are still to be confirmed.

I realise this is rather short notice for an event of this scale, but please let me know if you have any capacity to support.

Many thanks,

We could support this if necessary, but it is quite far away from Leeds Beckett so would involve two hours travelling. If other partners can deliver this it might suit us not to go! If the event can’t go ahead without us, let me know and we can do what we can to support. Will (LBU)

Hi Jo, thanks for letting me know.
Hi Will, I have not had any other responses, and I have to say I thought the turnaround time on this might be a bit tight, which is perhaps why. It seems like it would take a lot of time and resource for Beckett to provide sole delivery on this, so I wonder if it might work better if we postponed and rescheduled?  Please let me know your thoughts.
Best, Anna

Hi, I am available on this day so am happy to support if it’s still going ahead. Could also provide ambassadors if we know how many are needed and from which courses.
Thanks, Peggy (UoH)

Hi Peggy! Thank for your offer of support. I think because it’s such a large group we would have to run this over two days (or half of the year in the morning and the other half in the afternoon). Based on working with 2 groups of 150, we would need between 8/10 subjects and activities (with groups of around 15/20 students). This is still quite a grand undertaking for you and your ambassadors to deliver on your own (these events usually needed a longer lead time, because of the amount of activities involved).
Will, what are your thoughts, and would you and your ambassadors be happy to collaborate with Peggy on this one, in the event that we can’t get another partner on board?
Best, Anna
