The YES Project have partnered with Pathways to provide expert advice and guidance to NEET young people about accessing further and higher education. Over the next coming months, we will be working together to deliver a number of informative sessions to ensure young people are supported in their journey back to education.
The first session which was delivered last week introduced the idea of higher education and included a fun quiz that aimed to see if young people believed common misconceptions about higher education such as who can access it, how to pay for it and the help available. After the quiz Katie broke down each of the questions and provided more information. This session also defined further and higher education. Six young people were in attendance who all found the session fun and useful.
Future sessions will include:
The different routes into Higher Education
Student Finance Explained
Application process and help
Support available at college/uni
University tours and student panels.
If you would like to find out more or join the next session, please contact Simran.
