Preparing for higher education: making the most of Year 12

This session focuses on the ways you can advise and support your students in their preparations for, and journey to, higher education. 

What should Year 12s be considering to inform their choices and next steps? 

How can your learners make their university application stand out? 

We also explore the importance of developing the skills required for degree-level study such as critical thinking, independent study and research.
