S4 Events - New Core Pupils!


The main aim of LIFT OFF is to get our Core Pupils - you or your young person - into Higher Education. We find that the best way to do this is to get pupils out of school and into a place where this goes on every day. So, what better way to get our new S4s excited about Higher Education than to experience a day in the life of a student!

We ran two S4 Events, 60 pupils from our Fife Schools at Abertay University and 90 pupils from our Dundee and Angus Schools on at Dundee and Angus College, Gardyne Campus in Dundee. At both events, the pupils saw lectures given by staff at both institutions. At Abertay University, the Fife pupils saw a lecture on Counselling and Psychology and the Dundee and Angus pupils sat in on a Computing and Programming lecture.

After these lectures, they got to see what a tutorial was like - a staple of the student experience where students get a chance to ask questions on their lectures in a smaller, classroom-like environment.

Now that S4 Events are over, pupils are in for continued support all the way up to S6 and beyond! This support comes in the form of 1:1 meetings taking place in March, a residential event over the summer and an SCQF accredited course in S5 - so watch this space, S4s!

Support is also open to Parents and Carers so feel free to get in touch at any point for information on university, college and funding your young person.

The LIFT OFF team are looking forward to getting to know you all over the next few years!
