University of York launch Next Step programme to Year 12 students

01 November 2022  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in: ,

Richmond Sixth Form College welcomed Andrew Hunter from the University of York who met our Year 12 students and launched the Next Step programme, a supported progression scheme which is available for all our Year 12 students to apply for.

The college has a very strong relationship with the University of York.  Next Step offers mentoring, a student conference and a summer school. Students can also access the online interactive hub to book events, take part in activities and meet their personal mentor. Each activity is worth credits and students are encouraged to build a complete programme of activities which gives additional benefits in the second year of the programme, such as guaranteed offers, alternative offers and possible financial support.

In 2021, Richmond Sixth Form College had more students than ever signing up and we hope that many more will join in 2022.

Andrew Hunter also stayed to run a workshop for a group of students, where he was able to gain information about what students are looking for from the University of York, and what they would like to see offered as part of the programme.  Thank you to Kian O’Brian, Benedict Simpson-Alexander, Toby Watson and Taylor Tomlinson for volunteering to take part in this. Students were given Amazon vouchers from the University of York.

Ms Mannion, Careers Leader, said: “I feel so proud that Richmond School and Sixth form College is one of the leading partner schools working with The University of York. Many more students will benefit from this programme and it opens doors to students to be able to seriously consider Russell Group universities.”
