Why should I be a part of the VENTURE ACADEMY?
In a world where grades and academic performance alone are increasingly less likely to secure places in further education and employment, the VENTURE ACADEMY provides students with opportunities to make a difference in schools and community settings whilst receiving training and support in active and engaging group sessions.
As students progress through the ACADEMY, they will work towards Leadership and Ambassador Awards as they record their progress whilst also gaining additional certifications to add to their CVs.
Sessions will cover themes such as confidence and assertiveness as well as effective communication whilst offering practical activities such as orienteering and raft building to put skills into practice.
Students who show outstanding progress and engagement throughout the ACADEMY will also have the opportunity to become Youth Activators with South Northants Council*, which offers casual paid employment during the summer holidays and further opportunities to extend your CV.
* All Youth Activators must be a minimum age of 16 years old.
