HEART Staff asked 3 years ago

School: Manor Croft
Requested: Course Carousel
Date of Request: 02/10/2015
Requested delivery Date: 29/01/2016 – 9:00 – 12:10 (BREAK AT 10:55 – 11:10AM)
“We are holding an Enrichment Day on 29th January2016 in school where students will not follow their usual timetable but instead move around a carousel of activities/talks/workshops on different themes. I was wondering if the HEART team could possibly help us out here and provide :
A full day’s activity for Y10 based on Post 16 routes, choices, etc., etc. The more practical the better

Audience: Whole of Year 10

Update: 10/11/15

The morning would start at 9am and finish at 12.10pm. How you structure the carousel is entirely up to you and the partners. We have hour long lessons, and there would be three lessons in the morning. However, if you want to run sessions that are shorter than an hour and have more of them then that’s fine.
Break time would be 10.55am – 11.10am.
Update: General subject areas covered have been sent to Matt for input, particularly for UoH.  Will be in touch shortly with feedback.

HiHappy to do a generic talk with the theme of HE in FE / UCAS / finance or a practical activity/workshop relating to sport / business (and can try and get an academic / ambassador if not it would be me with my academic head on!) ThanksJo

Hi.There is a Couse Carousel and Passport to University in for Manor Croft on 29th January. LCC (Jo) happy to support the Course Carousel. This would mean I am unable to support with physical presence at a campus etc for this Passport to University request, and we could not support transport costs. I agree that paying of transport makes the activity not sustainable and logistically the visit needs to be effective both in terms of time and cost. I am happy yo go along with what ever the host partners decide about continuing with Passport to University.Thanks, Jo

I can offer an ‘ Insight into the Creative Industries’ presentation with an accompanying worksheets that mind maps skills and plans what they need to do.
I would change the presentation and workbook so it was not labelled Leeds College of Art.
Perhaps we could do with a HEART Powerpoint slide template?
Can widen this into any career subject aspiration and planning three things they need to do ( a bit of the My Plan /Pledge sheet) if you are proposing 8 short activities this could be a 15 minute activity.
Can also offer a couple of Art/Design Student Ambassadors if one session is Q & A with students?

Best wishes

Hi Ian,
We can help. Subjects we could offer from ambassadors for the course carousel would be:
·         Business
·         Music
·         Biology
·         Pharmacy
·         Art
·         Psychology
Once you tell me what subjects they’d like (we’d be happy to send ambassadors from all of these subjects if necessary), I can send out requests. With it being a new activity we’re offering I’m keen for our senior ambassadors to get a practice event in as soon as possible. The sooner I can do this the more chance I’ve got of getting the ambassadors booked.

Hi all,
I have only been able to book 3 student ambassadors – one from each of Business, Music and Biology. I’d be happy to ask each of them to do 8x 15 minute sessions. I will also attend on the day to support the ambassadors and see how the event works.
Thanks, Liam
