Step Up Move On is designed to support a small group of children who are looked after throughout their secondary and higher education to help build confidence, self-esteem and support them to achieve their future aspirations.
Students are referred on to the programme by our Letterbox Coordinators, the Virtual School Team, or their educational setting. We work closely with the University of Hull to tailor each session to help the young people on the programme to consider trying new experiences and inspire them to discover new opportunities. In addition, they can receive nurturing support, meet new people, and have fun.
The aim is for approximately 10 – 12 young people to begin the programme in Year 7 and attend at least three sessions a year: two at the University of Hull and one at another college or educational establishment. Each academic year, the students then move up through the programme, developing new strengths and skills to help support their studies and well-being. When they reach Year 11, they will receive support to help them on their chosen college or career pathway and move forward in Year 13 with their transition to university if they so require.
During the summer holidays, the students may also have the opportunity to attend our other fun Learning Experiences. Recent activities include: Welton Waters, Go Ape, RSPB Bempton Cliff visit, Yorkshire Water’s Tophill Low Nature Reserve, Drama Workshops, Soccer Kings, Cook Stars, London visits and lots more.
