S3 Events - Welcome to LIFT OFF!


January is always a busy time at LIFT OFF. We are refreshed from the Festive Break and ready to get underway with the first set of events of 2018 - our S3 Events!

These events are all about introductions: to LIFT OFF as a programme and to our team; to meeting real students currently studying in Higher Education and an introduction to what endless possibilities lay ahead of them. This year we visited all of our 12 schools in Tayside and Fife, seeing a total of 487 S3 pupils!

S3 Events are also a great opportunity for pupils to meet and chat to real life students currently studying at university or college - to understand what life is really like after school and to ask any questions they have always wondered about. Some of these questions include: "Where do you stay when you go to university?" "Is it expensive?" and "What grades do I need to study at university?" Once tallied up, our student volunteers dedicated 44 hours of their own time to help us deliver this element of the LIFT OFF programme which is a fantastic achievement!

As this is just the start of their LIFT OFF journey, we look forward to working with them in the future - also, we promise, there are no more voluntary dress up activities!

If being a part of LIFT OFF is something you are seriously considering, see your Guidance Teacher in school for more information.
