Aim higher: an engaging, drama-based presentation to inspire young people to make post-16 choices to fulfil their potential.
The acting was superb, and the students engaged with the full performance. The actual show is a genius idea and pitched at exactly the right level… thank you very much for such a wonderful production that will certainly get our students to think about their future.”
Lasting 30 minutes, our performance, written for students in Years 8-10, aims to inspire young people to aim higher and achieve the best grades they can possibly get. It brings to life all the challenges, pressures and realities surrounding young people when it comes to thinking about their post-16 choices and staying committed to working towards their GCSEs. It’s a uniquely engaging experience designed to switch students on to continue learning, make more informed choices, and look forward to a successful destination in life.
The performance is pitch perfect, language and cultural reference appropriate, and in tune with the target audience. For school tours, it can be performed in up to two schools per day or in a central venue/ location for audiences of up to 250 students (back to back performances can be offered to larger year groups).
Building on the messages of the performance, we recommend that when people leave they are signposted to support mechanisms including their Careers Adviser, relevant websites and other useful resources. Also, because parents and carers have the biggest influence on the career choices of young people, we also offer performances which they can attend to learn all about post-16 choices and support their children. Our highly experienced project coordinators will ensure tour bookings are maximised and smoothly executed by coordinating the direct communication with schools and colleges through a range of different methods.
