Hilbre Upskill Me, Launched for Year 11, 12 and 13 students
Hilbre Upskill Me is a programme designed to help our students remain active learners from home and help them to develop skills and broaden their repertoire during this time. Further details can be found on the Hilbre Upskill Me page in the curriculum area of the website.
The programme will be in two halves: Academic & Enrichment
It’s important not to lose the key skills you have developed so far throughout your school career, especially in those subjects you wish to continue studying in the future. Therefore, from now until May half term, you should aim to complete transition tasks in subject areas you are interested in (at least 3). These tasks will be set by your subject teachers and available to view on SMHW. Activities could include watching and responding to videos, working through booklets, completing online courses or wider reading around the subject. If you do not have access to SMHW please contact the Head of Sixth Form, Mr Hellier, on firstname.lastname@example.org
We believe many higher education providers and potential employers will be interested to know how you have used this time to learn new skills and gain new experiences, which will broaden your repertoire and give you a competitive advantage on CVs and future applications. Therefore, it is just as important to take this opportunity to develop your skill set and remain ahead of the game with regard to applying for future study of employment.
Here you will find ideas of enrichment activities in line with the Hilbre Pledges, which this term focuses on developing ‘boldness’. These may be online courses in areas you are interested in, or other enrichment activities.
