Summary

This term’s Primary school Careers and Enterprise group meeting will take place on Tuesday 10th March from 3pm to 5pm at Taunton Campus of Taunton and Bridgwater College (Room A104), Wellington Road inTaunton, TA1 5AX.

Main News Story

The focus this time will be on Higher Education, especially the opportunity to participate in a Somerset Children’s University (CU) programme. We have run a pilot in the West Somerset area over the last 18 months and are now keen to see if this might be of interest to schools across the rest of Somerset.  This links with a funding opportunity from the CU and their partner university, Plymouth University, that can help support a number of Somerset primary schools to take part in this initiative.

We will also hear from another local initiative, Next Steps South West, about how they are raising aspirations in young people to consider university and higher education options, including degree apprenticeships; will showcase our new Study Up Somerset website, and hear from Bridgwater & Taunton College’s higher education programme team about the large number of options to study higher education in Somerset.

Finally it would be good to discuss how best to make sure our primary school students are inspired to consider higher education as a possible and exciting option as they progress.

I hope this programme is of interest and that someone from your school will be able to come along. If you are interested in attending please let Julie Young know at JAYoung@somerset.gov.uk
