This programme supports students' writing skills with a series of workshops in local schools, targeting specific writing skills (e.g., editing), and showing how those skills contribute to success in the study of Arts and Social Sciences subjects/careers. From 22-23 academic year, the programme will work with students currently in Year 8 or Year 9, in select local schools. Please note we have limited capacity to run this programme, and details and timings will be discussed with participating schools directly.
