  1. 1. Service Children Support Network The Service Children Support Network is delighted to announce a continuation of its partnership project with the Bath Spa University Widening Participation Team. This initiative will offer on-going educational enrichment and support project for primary and secondary aged Service children in schools in Wiltshire and Somerset in 2014. This programme continues to geographically extend the current project in place with the University of Oxford in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. The aims of the project are to: • Inspire intellectual, global and personal curiosity in pupils. • Enrich and enhance students self- esteem, aspirations and hopes for the future. • Introduce the language and context of Further and Higher Education and dispel any misconceptions about university study and life. • Give students a greater understanding of their progression through school. This is done by delivering interesting, informative and relevant programmes to learners between the ages of 10-18 both in schools and in the university. All workshops will be delivered by members of staff from the university widening participation team with the support of student ambassadors and all staff and students have an enhanced CRB check. The programme offers: • A range of on-campus and in-school sessions for local primary schools aimed at raising pupil awareness of and increasing aspiration towards future opportunities, including
  2. 2. Service Children Support Network highlighting Higher Education opportunities and the benefits they can provide for pupils who wish to go down this route. • Career Detective sessions which offer curriculum based learning and a chance to explore careers with Bath Spa University students. • A range of on-campus and in–school sessions for local secondary schools. • Road show events which consist of a carousel of multiple awareness-raising sessions run both in-school and at the university. • Support at careers fairs and parents evenings. • Subject enrichment sessions which try to give both an idea of what a subject may be like at Higher Education level as well as supporting the current curriculum learning. These are run by current university lecturers and take the form of a mock university lecture, a practical session or discussion seminar. These are usually offered on campus. • Skills support sessions led by current staff and students focusing on topics such as: Revision skills; Writing skills; Research skills; Referencing skills; CV Writing; and assisting with the UCAS application process. If you live in Wiltshire or Somerset and you would like your school to take part in this initiative please contact SCSN or Bath Spa University Widening Participation Team for more details If Mum’s and Dads are inspired to continue their learning why not encourages them to have a look at Bath Spa University Programmes.
