DANCOP Transition Session

DANCOP ran a transition session for year 11 students during tutor this morning that was aimed at helping them to think about their plans after year 11.

Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme (DANCOP) is a collaborative network between universities and colleges across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire that exists to provide targeted higher education outreach programmes to secondary schools and colleges across the two counties.

Part of the workshop was a 'write a worry' on a piece of paper and throw it away. The students particularly enjoyed this practical task and Sam did a good job dodging the paper balls!
