Degree in a Day - How to choose the right GCSEs

  • Bespoke event upon request - due the pandemic this event will be delivered virtually.
  • Hosted by Canterbury Christ Church UniversityDelivered at: Canterbury campus, Medway campus, Can be delivered in your school/college

A Degree in a Day is an attainment raising workshop.

Students will take a fun personality test to see what their strengths and skills are, will learn the do's and don'ts of how to choose GCSE's, understand where to seek advice and how GCSE choices are linked to further study and career choices. They will take part in activities helping them to make the correct choices and will have 'practise' characters to ensure they know the process. The final session will be to make a job advert based on what they have learned.

This event aims to take the fear and uncertainty out of choosing GCSEs and to explain how these qualifications are important when choosing what students can do in the future.

4 x 1 hour sessions (or to be decided with school staff) in the form of a lecture, seminar, research and presentation. School staff will be sent a link for live delivery, to share their screen with students. In addition laptops must be provided for sessions 2, 3 and 4 so that SCE ambassadors can assist groups with the work. We recommend groups of 4-5 students.
