About the Year 11 Future Me Program
Year 11 Future Me has two exciting components delivered by In2Uni Mentors for our In2Uni partner high schools:
- An in-school workshop which aims to increase student awareness of post-high school options. These workshops are suitable for the entire Year 11 cohort, regardless of university aspirations. Key content and activities include exploring 21st century employability skills, identifying individual strengths, and building student confidence about 'the next steps.'
- An exclusive opt-in online mentoring program for students to receive insight into skills that will enhance their senior school experience and guide them on their post-school pathways. Current UOW student mentors will host these sessions and offer insight into higher education pathways or programs.
More about online mentoring:
Mentors take student interests into consideration as they deliver the program. Mentors will teach exam preparation tips, strategies for pursuing goals after high school, and offer guidance on life as a university student.
Students will gain confidence and useful resources to enhance their understanding of how to navigate their post-school study and career goals.
- Exam preparation tools and skill development under the guidance of our In2Uni mentors who have achieved a Band 5 or higher in one or more HSC subjects.
- Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a guaranteed place in the 2024 January Summer Master Class Program* or the 2024 Year 12 Future Me Program.
- Personalised mentoring to explore post-high school options, including university, TAFE, employment or apprenticeships.
- Opportunities to connect with mentors and ask questions on topics such as time management, maintaining a healthy balance and life beyond high school.
*Guaranteed entry for 2024 Summer Master Class Program is conditional on students meeting UOW subject grade entry requirements from Year 11 school assessment results
The opt-in mentoring program will take place over five consecutive weeks in late Term 3 and will finish before Year 11 exams. It will be held after school and online via Zoom.
Students must attend at least four of the five sessions to successfully complete the program.
Each weekly session will cover a different topic and have a Q&A portion at the end for students to ask any questions they might have.
Exact dates, more information on the topics, and the link to apply for the opt-in mentoring program can be found below.
