Supporting Generating Genius Students

Uni Genius update


Our students have been busy over September alongside returning back to school with university preparation programmes and career discovery programmes. For our Year 13s the focus on university preparation side has been on choosing the right degree subject and fine tuning personal statements. We delivered 3 Choosing the Right Degree sessions in September run by our partners at University of Leeds. We had 82 of our students attend across the three sessions. There have also been drop in sessions run alongside these for students to discuss their interests in more detail. We also ran a Physics Degree Taster day which included for the first time since we gone virtual students being able to do at home experiments.


Last week, we hosted a virtual celebration event to the mark end of our Step into National Grid Programme. Forty of our Year 13 students over the last 4 months participated in Insight talks, technical engineering boot camps, soft skills sessions, Energy Challenge day as well as 12 weeks of one to one mentoring. Congratulations to our students who participated. Thank you to the National Grid employees who designed, delivered workshops and mentored our students.


We are currently in the process of recruiting our students for Uni Genius. This year 300 new students will join us in London. We also pleased that our new pilot cohort of 100 students from white low income households will be joining us. They will be from Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds and the surrounding areas of these cities. We are working in partnership with Outwood Grange Acadamies to recruit the majority of pilot of students. We had a great presentation afternoon to the Heads of Sixth Form of all these academies who are excited for their students to join us in November. We have recruited 220/300 for London starting at the end of October and 37/100 for the northern regions at the end of November.
