The Academic Enhancement Programme (A.E.P.)

Future proofing education for our young minds

The global economic forum says that by 2030, 60-80% of employment will be in jobs that don’t exist yet. This is perhaps the most challenging time for education and educational institutions, how do we prepare people to have skills and abilities that we don’t even know about today? The answer is we need to install an attitude of adaptability. In the words if Einstein “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” We know that ‘Why’ drives attitudes. (Simon Sinek).

 

We believe that adaptability is the end of a chain reaction: inspiration causes

curiosity, curiosity drives change and learning and it is these factors which drive adaptability. So, our job is to open young minds to the future and that’s exactly what the goal of our A.E.P programs do, our programmes inspire young minds to think about their future.

What do young minds think of the A.E.P?

An overview of A.E.P.

The programme is an eight-day UK programme designed to inspire, ideas, people and places for

young learners aged between 11 and 17. There are three variants of the programme but they all

share a common core programme, as follows:

  •  Behind the scenes tour of Oxford and Cambridge Universities

  •  Access to leading academics – Professor Noble and Doctor Wilkinson

  •  Future minded career workshops post exposure

  •  Deep dive into UK culture to understand how native speakers speak

The three variants across the 8 days
