Join us as Make Happen goes online

We’ve been working to produce online content so we can continue to support schools, colleges, teachers and students right across Essex, including schools who haven’t yet worked with us, during the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown.

Here are some of the activities now available:

YouTube playlists
We have created two YouTube playlists which have a small section of our presentations pre-recorded in an assembly style. The first playlist has on it our Future Ready curriculum which is suitable for post-16 students, and the second is a more general playlist that includes the rest of our content, suitable for all age ranges. Please feel free to watch and share them with students, parents and carers, or embed them into your own online platforms.

Google Classroom
Following a review of various online platforms being used by schools and colleges, and across the wider education sector, we have decided to use Google Classroom for our sessions which would usually be delivered by Make Happen staff. There are a number of sessions relating to different aspects of Higher Education, and education more broadly. If your school is one of our UniConnect target schools please contact your Make Happen collaborative outreach officer, if your school is based in Essex but not one of our target schools and you’d like to get involved, please contact us.

Recording of our providers’ webinar and Q&A
Our FREE webinar, Make Happen Goes Online! is on Thursday 30 April – teachers from all schools and colleges we work are invited to join us, and our providers, so we can tell you about the many ways we can keep supporting you during the coronavirus lockdown. Book your place now with Eventbrite.

Website and social media
Finally, a quick reminder that we are continually updating our website and social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the latest news, events, and tips and advice so keep an eye out for any updates and please feel free to like and share.
