Mind The Gap - and Go!

Deciding to take a gap year opens up a wealth of opportunities to you.  For possibly the first time in your life, no one is going to tell you what to do.  In the autumn, many of your friends will be off to university and you will be completely free to make your own choices!

 

There is an enormous industry focussed on helping you achieve your perfect gap year but there is so much information available that it can bury you.  During this workshop, we will encourage you to think of your own needs so that you can use those resources sensibly.  You will be able to work out what you want to achieve from your gap year so you can structure it wisely, yet still with sufficient flexibility to be able to grab random opportunities when they arise.  We will deal with areas such as:

 

  • How to balance the components of a gap year (earning, travelling, charity work, working abroad, staying in the UK);
  • How to finance the gap year;
  • How to develop your skills so you can earn money and have fun at the same time;
  • The relative benefits of travelling alone, with friends or with a company;
  • How to stay safe;
  • Communication while you are abroad;
  • Emergency planning.

 

The course has been developed with the help of many students who have recently undertaken gap years, so it is full of information they wish they had known before they left.

Duration of the course:

4 hours

Suitable for:

16+
