Our Education in Action days are designed to motivate and inspire KS4 and KS5 students; to encourage them to pursue their studies; to show them where there studies could lead; and to help them achieve the best possible results. They provide access to experts from academia, the media and industry in a way that is just not possible in the classroom. They are educational, inspirational and fun.
ttp days are easy to book. Schools and colleges don’t need to have final numbers or payment at the time of booking. You can amend numbers (or cancel) up to 28 days before the event. In addition, the days are invoiced and there is no deposit taken on booking, allowing the maximum flexibility possible.
