Pathways' Workshop Packs

What are the Year 11 Pathways’ Workshop Packs?

Pathways have developed a range of fully resourced workshop packages for students to explore their further and higher education opportunities. All DIY delivery packs come with activity sheets, a lesson plan, and a PowerPoint. We recommend these workshops for ages 14 – 15, but a number of these activities are applicable to a wide range of young people. These workshops can be delivered in a number of ways. See the options under ‘location’ on the right-hand side of this page.

After that session, I am thinking about University. I wasn’t before. I’m more confident now.
