Empowering the next generation of learners to pursue further education in university has been a significant part of Canterbury Christ Church’s positive impact both locally and regionally.
Our School and College Engagement (SCE) Team works to take the idea of higher education directly to children and young adults where they are currently studying.
This activity really captures the essence of “past present and future”. Our SCE team, who themselves are graduates, are now showing the present generation how they too can shape their futures through study at Canterbury Christ Church.
With the support of Canterbury Christ Church ambassadors, local school students produced an array of dynamic posters using newspaper cut-outs, collage, and photos as part of our Diamond Jubilee celebration.
After a session with Learning and Research Librarian, Michelle Crowther, the students delved into the history of education and their own schools, considering what life was like for students their age back in 1962 and what it may be like for them in 60 years’ time. Many also investigated the cultural, political, and societal landscape of the 60s, both in the UK and around the globe.
There was a tie at the top in the poster contest.
