Forty-three Brighouse Sixth Form students successfully completed this programme.

In addition, seven students were presented with an “Outstanding Achievement Award” for excelling throughout the programme.

Students were presented with their awards on stage by the Deputy Vice Chancellor. Afterwards, they were treated to a lunch in the modern arts building of the university.

There was a great sense of achievement and occasion in the air and students enjoyed it immensely.

This is a higher education preparation programme which comprises of four units: You and Your Career, Exploring Your Future, Managing Your Money and Marketing Yourself.

The programme is designed to aid students with investigating third level education or employment options.

They must create various documents required for this process, as well as explore suitable university courses.

Students also investigate the financial assistance available to them. At the end of the programme students perform presentations, have a mock interview and compile a personal statement.

This is a massively worthwhile programme which gives students a head start on the UCAS process that follows at the beginning of Year 13.

Successful completion of the scheme earns students 30 UCAS points that are recognised by the University of Huddersfield, Leeds Metropolitan University and Leeds Trinity.

Well done to all students.
