From School to the World: Making a Successful Transition

Are you planning to seek work, go to university, take a gap year, start a business, travel or write a book when you leave school?

Your new world of possibilities will provide both greater challenges and more freedom, as you build this exciting but often daunting new stage of your life.

 

Survive and Thrive

Gartan OETC and Consilium Education have teamed up to provide a course that will help you to meet the challenges head on, and to maximise the potential that this new stage offers you.

This course develops motivation, commitment and resilience, key traits required in the absence of familiar supports of school, family and friends.

Together, we provide a high quality and life-long learning experience, designed to develop focus and mind-set while preparing you to deal with challenges.

You will develop:

  • Writing skills for academia and workplace
  • Work independently and in a team
  • Approach decision making constructively
  • Turn setbacks into positives

This course is particularly appropriate if your vision includes continuing studies and learning in any arena. We want to empower you not only to survive, but to thrive.

Who Should Attend?

This course is tailor-made to suit the needs of students from 15 to 20 years of age.

Younger students will be able to absorb ideas and put them to good use as they prepare and revise for their final exams.

Students leaving school in 2016 will benefit immediately as they make their plans for 2016-2017.

Students already in higher education will gain from having their awareness heightened as they plan for their future.
