Leap Skills workshops, provided by Unite Students for sixth formers
The UK’s largest student accommodation provider, Unite Students, is running free, interactive, 90-minute workshops throughout October to December to help sixth formers feel more confident and prepared for what to expect during the big leap to university. Leap Skills will feature a series of interactive, scenario-based activities and an informative tour.
Your sixth formers will:
- Begin to understand what to expect when living away at university
- Feel empowered to adapt well to new situations
- Build on their natural resilience and common sense
- Consider how they will develop the social relationships and support networks needed to thrive in a shared living environment
Workshop content is based on Unite Student’s extensive research insight and their first-hand experience of supporting 50,000 students every year as they move into university accommodation.
