  • General skills workshop: 'How to compare and contrast'
  • General skills workshop: 'How to structure an essay'
  • Content specific sessions, e.g. working with texts that feature in the A-Level or GCSE syllabi
  • Content specific sessions, e.g. working with texts and topics as university taster sessions
  • Mentorship for the EPQ
  • 'Studying at university' sessions

If you are interested in any of the sessions above, please contact Dr Jo Pettitt (j.l.pettitt@kent.ac.uk).
