This popular activity is aimed at younger students, who are given the task of creating a fictional character which they will take on a journey through school, further education, University and the working world. Students will be given a description of their student, including their background and interests and they will develop a progression route from GCSE, through to Further and Higher Education, using a range of literature and guidelines, eventually following their student through into a career of their choice. At the end of the session, students will present their characters’ journey and explain decisions taken at various stages of their educational life. Maximum of 30 students.
