The Progression Module
Thank you both for coming to us on Friday with your Student Ambassadors. It was good to meet you, and the Student Ambassadors made a tremendous impression on everyone who met or worked with them. I was also very pleased with the way the day went, and the way our students focused on the module. My tutors were glad both of the time they had to spend with their tutees and with quality of the materials and input from you. I think the day has got the Progression Module off to a really good start.Dominic Sinnett, Assistant Headteacher, St. Mary's Catholic High School, Menston
The Progression Module is a year-long structured programme which aims to support students in Year 12 in their preparation for both Higher Education and employment. The Module is delivered by tutors within schools and colleges with support given by Leeds Beckett University. There are currently over 2000 students enrolled from 34 schools who are taking part in the programme.
Within the Module, students are guided through how to compose a CV, how best to research different courses and how to effectively budget when at university. Students also undertake a mock interview and are assessed on the delivery of a presentation. Staff from Leeds Beckett University are available to support throughout the programme and to deliver sessions to introduce new aspects of the Module to students. Upon successful completion of the Module, students are awarded 12 UCAS points which are accepted by Leeds Beckett University, University of Huddersfield and Leeds Trinity University.
