Enrichment

 

‘Enrichment options are important to either help you develop skills needed for employment or university, or they can allow you to gain extra UCAS tariff points to help you enhance your university application.’ (Amy, Y13 student)

Alongside our taught curriculum students at Duke’s Sixth Form have the opportunity to spend two periods per week undertaking an enrichment activity.  These sessions are designed to allow our students to develop additional skills or gain experiences and interests that will make them stand out of the crowd in applications for future study or employment.

Students have been able to choose from:

  • Work experience
  • NCEASport
  • Departmental support
  • Volunteering
  • Extended Project Qualification
  • Reading support
  • Arts Award Gold
  • Career Ready Programme
  • Music and Performing Arts

 

In addition our currriculum subjects each hold an enrichment activity over the course of the year. Highlights have been:

  • Forensic Brain Day (Psychology)
  • Digital Day (ICT)
  • Auschwitz Ambassadors (History)
  • God and the Big Bang Conference (Science & RS)
  • Medical Mavericks (Science)
  • Industry Mentor Day (Business)
  • Social Sciences University Taster Day (Health & Social Care)
