My Week of Work: Friday
Immerse Education offers two week programmes in academic subject development with tutors from the University of Oxford and Cambridge. These take place as a residential programme in July and August, with accommodation provided at the universities, and a full programme of support academic and social activities.
There are also options to take part virtually, with an Online Academic Insights programme that runs for two weeks in December, April and throughout July and August. Although this is a fee-paying programme, we have bursaries available, and offer scholarships based on an essay competition open to all students aged 13-18.
These resources have been developed by Ormiston Academy Trust as part of a work experience project, to support the amplification of Technical and Vocational Education routes in Alternative Provision settings.
Green Section: My Environment My Future (MEMF) is a free schools programme which embeds knowledge, resources and guidance on careers within the built environment directly into the delivery of the GCSE and A-level geography curriculum. Since launching in May 2020, over 260 teachers across the UK have engaged with MEMF and the programme is currently launching for the next academic year.
It is completely free to register and download the resources. For more information on MEMF, please visit My Environment My Future – Connecting the curriculum to the built environment career (memf.careers).
