Our Pre-16 Inspire programme will support you in raising the aspirations of your students so they discover their own potential and fulfil their educational ambitions. Some students will already know the path they would like to take while others may find it more difficult to navigate. Leeds Trinity University is committed to making every student’s personal journey as easy and informative as possible.

Your students will gain key skills by taking part, such as: teamwork, creativity, communication and decision making. We ensure that your objectives are met, and you and your students are supported.

Interactive Campus Tour

Student Ambassadors will lead small groups on a quest around the LTU campus to complete a campus quiz. Stopping at all the main points of interest, students will use their initiative to answer questions about the university’s facilities and community. This fun and engaging session is designed to myth-bust and raise awareness of what university is like.

Student Life Session 

Supported by SRO staff, Student Ambassadors take the lead on this session and provide participants with an opportunity to challenge their preconceptions about ‘who’ and ‘what’ students are. In groups they will use their reasoning skills and creativity to create a student, and think about their student lifestyle, using items provided in a backpack for inspiration.

Thinking Ahead

The last session of the day will prompt students to reflect on what they have learnt throughout their visit to Leeds Trinity University. Student Ambassadors will facilitate an interactive activity that encourages students to identify what really matters to them and apply it to their education journey. Students will leave having set some targets and goals for their own progress in a session that shows participants that it is never too early to plan for the future.
