Happy New Year!: 2019 Update!


Happy New Year everyone!

It's 2019 and it's great to be back! We hope everyone had a great time off and is ready to get back to normality in school.

It's a busy time for everyone from S4 all the way up to S6 with most sitting prelims and for those coming to the end of their time at school, getting UCAS applications sent away.

This is true for LIFT OFF too, we have a really busy spell approaching and we're definitely looking forward to catching up with everyone!

First up, we are kicking off 2019 with our S3 events in all of our schools. These new sessions are all about introductions, to the team and to Higher Education in general. Our first event is in Levenmouth Academy this Friday, so if you see us in school, say 'Hi!'

Next, the team will be finishing up our sessions with our S6 pupils, the third of three in total where we have looked at starting their UCAS applications and editing their personal statements so far. This last session looks at everything else they will need to consider before making the big step towards Higher Education - things like: offers, other ways into university, funding and loans, student accommodation and much more. Last year's S6s took a lot from this session so it is vital that you are there if you are applying to university or college!

As well as these sessions, the team will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about your application to university/college, to SAAS for your funding, your eligibility for loans/bursaries or accommodation so, please, do not hesitate to get in touch, S5/S6s!

However, that's not all! Shortly after these sessions start, the team will be in schools to meet up with our S5 pupils for their Individual Action Plan meetings, or IAPs for short! Every pupil will have an arranged slot to meet up with a member of the LIFT OFF team and we will spend 15-20 mins having a chat about where you are at in S5 and where you want to be after S6. More on this to come later though!

So, as you can see, it is a busy term for us all but LIFT OFF will be there to help if you need it - this goes for parents too! Any questions on anything above, head over to our 'Contact Us' page and give us an email/call!
