I could attend this with Jo. I’m in Leeds/Wakefield during the day so makes sense. Liam (UoH)

Hi All, Lucy confirms that LTU can also support this with ambassadors.
Thanks, Anna

Hi All
Just to ask about the John Smeaton Year 9 Conversation Cafe on Wednesday March 9th
This is the first C Cafe for Year 9’s I have done , having just done Year 11’s so far and a Year 6 Transition day.
Can you suggest how we angle this for Year 9’s with our materials? They are 4 years from applying to HE, just chosen/choosing their GCSE options.
I feel the questions on the stand should be simpler/broader and approach should be different; What are your plans/aspirations? What are you interested in? What are you going to do now?
I could adapt the My Plan sheet so we ask them to fill it in as a bit of interactivity.
Any suggestions will be useful.
Also to note that this event has LCC, LCA, LTU, UoH and TBC down to attend; is 5 too many for a stand in a school corridor?
Best wishes

Hi All, to update LTU will no longer be supporting this. Best, Anna

Hi Anna, I know there are lots of partners involved at the moment, but if you think an ambassador presence would be good, Leeds Beckett will be able to provide two. Let me know.Thanks,Will

HEART Staff replied 3 years ago

Hi Will, many thanks, but let’s leave this one with Jo and Martell if you don’t mind – I think as it is for Year 9s there will be less scope for discussion than with the year 11 one, if this makes sense. Best, Anna

No problem – sounds good to me. Beckett will stay out of this one.

Hi all, just to confirm I will take this one out of my calendar as well. Thanks, Liam
