Inspiring Futures Programme Review

During the Summer Term,  Year 11 got another step closer to preparing for life after Long Close by participating in the ‘Inspiring Futures’ programme.

The Inspiring Futures programme was designed by Cognita Schools as a replacement for this year’s GCSE’s. Cognita worked together with professionals from different industries to offer a programme to equip students with the experience, skills and personal qualities required to build an impressive Record of Achievement portfolio and ensure they always stand out from the crowd. Watch the video below to find out more.

Here is what the Pupils said about their experience:

“I’ve found Debatemate really useful as it helped me see both sides of an argument and I liked working with people I don’t know.” Alex

“Innerdrive has helped me increase in confidence in speaking with other people, and the taster sessions have allowed me to make a better decision about my a levels.” Alex

“I’ve really enjoyed the leadership skills I have learnt in the course” Efferson

“Taster sessions have been really helpful as it helps me for 6th form subjects which I have chosen. From this I have got more interest and knowledge from the subjects which I chose.” Ranvir
