About this programme
What we offer
NXT Gen Innovators ‘Fresh Minds’ is a programme of study for students aged 14-17 which develops skills and subject knowledge in preparation for university and beyond. Students work through a series of modules with advance academic content developing expertise which is encompassed in a STEM research project. This helps develop a set of transferable skills including critical thinking, reasoning, problem solving and supporting students who need to sit any additional admissions tests for University (such as the BMAT, UCAT, LNAT or any of the Oxbridge assessments). With many Russell Group universities announcing that they will be increasingly calling pupils to interview and placing a greater emphasis on these interviews, these skills are invaluable.
This programme has been designed to prepare students to be forward-thinking and develop the 10 skills identified by Harvard University which are essential for potential careers in the next 10 years. Students are given a unique introduction to advance academic content that is challenging and stimulating regardless of their academic ability.
