The Year 6 Future Finder program will not be held as an on-campus event in 2020 due to COVID-19 and required social distancing measures in place at UOW. Instead, schools are being offered a selection of resources designed to start future discussions about career options with their students. Communications have been sent to our In2Uni partnered schools regarding this change - get in touch if your school has not received these resources.
Year 6 Future Finder Program
The Year 6 Future Finder program commences with an in-school, teacher delivered module that links to the NSW Curriculum. The program involves:
- A unit of work delivered by trained primary school teaching staff; and
- A visit to the University of Wollongong campuses by students, parents and teachers, where they will participate in 'taster sessions' and aspiration supporting activities. Students will have the opportunity to discover what a university campus is ‘really’ like, understand how classes operate and experience the diverse range of opportunities that are available when studying at university.
This model is designed to provide students, parents and teachers with a positive connection to UOW and give them a 'taste' of university life.
