Managing transition - How to help junior and senior students
Date: March 15, 2018
Why you should attend? It is often felt that boarding gives students greater skills in dealing with the numerous changes and challenges that they will face at university but it could also be argued that with all of their physical and emotional needs catered for in a boarding environment they can often feel lost when they find themselves in a new place where these needs are more difficult to access. This course will highlight some of the additional skills that would help boarders enjoy a smooth transition from school to university life and will help staff prepare an exit strategy for boarders about to leave school and enter a more independent lifestyle.
- Communication skills in meeting new people, making friends and influencing people
- Attaining a good work/social life balance
- Managing finances and creating a weekly/termly budget
- Accessing support agencies that can help.
