Our Visions programmes are run as a series of workshops hosted in our partner schools and firms. It is important to note that Visions is in no way limited to students that fit the ‘typical’. We believe that the term ‘gifted and talented’ should not be confined to the traditional definition of merely academic excellence and we strive to help nurture students’ non academic strengths. We aim to give participants a greater appreciation for the importance of forward planning, teamwork, and constant reflection. Students will be encouraged to use these skills to develop practical approaches to their next steps in life, building their personal 6-month Vision Plan in the process. They will also be better prepared to engage with the different paths available to them be it academic, professional, entrepreneurial, or otherwise.
In the summer, we host a follow up session, where we bring together all of the students from the workshops. This gives us the chance to reconnect with students, check their progress and provide specific guidance on how to apply what they’ve learnt as they move into their next academic year. For the students it will be a great opportunity to come together and reflect as a group.
