This July and August saw the delivery of three highly successful Summer Schools at CCCU. The first, a three day non-residential for Looked After Children was very popular and saw great collaborative events between Canterbury Christ Church University and the University of the Creative Arts.
The next two were residential Summer Schools for Year 9 students. Despite the rain, everyone had a fantastic time and enjoyed the range of activities, from Health taster sessions to That’s A Wrap and a Summer School first, a Learning about Science and Religion (LASAR) workshop.
Canterbury Christ Church University also worked collaboratively with The University of Kent on their 2 day KAMCOP residential summer school, welcoming local students to the Canterbury campus.
However, CCCU do have some sad news, after a fantastic year of events they said goodbye to three valued members of staff. Many of you will have worked with them countless times and the CCCU Outreach Team owe them a huge thank you for their enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to Outreach. The recently married Bethany-Rose Cadell has moved to York to start a Masters in Cultural Heritage Management, Kate Riseley is training to become a primary school teacher and Chloe Medhurst is continuing to work with young people at the charity Addaction.
There are a range of events for the new academic year which are now ready to book so you can start planning your year as soon as you return. CCCU are excited to launch their new brochure at the Operations Group Meeting on 2 October 2017, along with introducing their new Graduate Outreach Trainees.
