Top Tips

Use case studies of celebrities who have struggled with literacy or numeracy, but have succeeded.

IDEA: Invite previous participants to talk to students specifically about the literacy and numeracy elements of their learning and how they overcame the fear/the challenges.

TOP TIP: Involve YP in the practical decisions that are involved in preparing for each day of your SAC. E.g. budgeting and shopping for lunch; making sandwiches and working out how many pieces of bread are needed for the whole group…

IDEA: Why not involve your YP in making a cake for the celebration event? They can be shown how a recipe is laid out (ingredients and method lists, often structured with bullet points and shorthand rather than full sentences etc..) and can help measure out all ingredients, thinking about metric and imperial measurements.
