Year 8 pupils work as a group with a Reaching Wider student leader


Motiv8 days are aimed at Year 8 pupils during the last term of the academic year. Motiv8 introduces pupils to educational pathways leading into careers and gets pupils to talk about their educational and personal strengths as well as any ambitions or aspirations they have for the future. The day is designed as a series of workshops in which groups discuss the broader idea of the world of work around them. Skills promoted on the day are group work, questioning skills, creativity, presenting and oracy skills.

“All pupils were fully engaged and enjoyed the experience. Several pupils showed a different side to their personality. Many contributed to discussions who would normally be very reserved in their communication with others. An excellent day.” Teacher from Sandfields Comprehensive School

Year 8 Taster Days

Subject specific workshops can be offered to Year 8 pupils at Swansea University and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. We offer both full day and half day events. Subjects that we can cater for include Engineering, Biological Science and Creative Writing. However, if you have a suggestion for a Year 8 taster day we will be happy to discuss it with you. These days are organised  for approximately 20 pupils therefore ensuring that pupils are able to have individual attention from tutors/student leaders. Workshops are led by specialist academics/post graduate students. We aim to make them as fun and interactive as possible.

"Student leaders were great with the pupils, friendly and gave loads of good advice throughout. Pupils were well motivated and keen to impress their ‘tutors’’. Teacher from Pentrehafod School
