We Celebrate your Volunteering Achievements

Last Wednesday, students, staff and community organisations came together to celebrate and recognise the achievements of student volunteering in the community throughout the academic year. With over 150 attending, the night was filled with food, drink, fun and inspirational speeches.

Every student who attended received a certificate presented by the Vice Chancellor, Edward Peck. We also presented a small group of students with awards for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Community Volunteering’. These students were nominated by their chosen organisations for going over and above within their volunteer role. This year’s winner were:

Emma Camm – Witness Service
Dion Chambers – Legal Advice Centre
Bradley Doherty – Balls to Poverty

Imogen Egan – Legal Advice Centre

Kyle Hart – Prison Advice and Care Trust
Colin Hickman – St Ann’s Allotments
Callum Mulligan – Nottingham City Museums & Galleries
Nottingham Trent Tigers – Nottingham Children’s Hospital

A huge congratulations to our winners and thanks to all of those that attended. If you would like to see more photos of the evening you can view them on our Volunteering Facebook page. Remember to like their page so you get the latest information and updates from the Volunteering team.

Our Family Supper 2015 (#FamSup15)

The family Supper events are collaborative events run at either Nottingham Trent University (NTU) or the University of Nottingham. They run between March and May and in 2015 saw over 750 people consisting of Year 10 pupils and their families from across Nottingham City and County. The aim of the event is to provide those Year 10 pupils and their families with information about higher education as well as allow them an opportunity to ask questions of current students at both institutions. #FamSup15 was used throughout the events to capture questions from families, some are answered below in the summary of the information given at the event. 
What is Higher education? 
Higher education (HE) is the next step in education after college or VI Form study. It is optional and students can come into HE at any age. See video:

The Students In Classrooms Mentors

Hi all, as you know our 6th Form students are mentored by various university undergraduates and postgraduates; they meet throughout the year; over ten times.  Each session lasts for an hour.  The tailor made sessions are to support:

·         Career pathways
·         Study skills
·         Motivate students
·         Support them overcome barriers to learning in various ways

The statement below has been written by one of the many mentors we have in our school; who have been incredibly professional and supportive with regards to increasing attainment levels. We are taking all of our 6th Form students who have been part of the scheme to a celebration event at Nottingham Trent University on May 7th.  Twenty students have taken part in the scheme.
