The Fantastic Futures Programme runs in Swindon. It exists to equip you with the knowledge, insight and skills you need to realise and achieve success in further education, apprenticeships or the world of work.
What is the Fantastic Futures Programme about?
We are working with Study Higher, a partnership of universities whose aim is to inform more young people about higher education and future opportunities. Typically, there are low levels of participation in higher education and apprenticeships overall in Swindon - and together, we hope to change that.
The Programme supports you and your peers in Years 10 to 13, working closely with your schools. You will benefit from activities that will raise your aspirations and help you realise the opportunities available to you and how you can seize them.
The Programme is fully funded by Study Higher, part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP).
What happens on the Fantastic Futures Programme?
- Meet with a mentor who will give you impartial guidance, encouragement and support to achieve your goals, tailored specifically to you.
- Run an INVOLVE project and create, launch and lead an enrichment activity in your school or college - it could be anything from organising a visiting speaker to running a club. By completing a project you will boost your skills and be able to evidence them in university or job applications. Your activity will also benefit those who attend.
