Lockdown Resources for students

There’s no doubt about it, lock downs are tough, for so many reasons.

Students might be finding it particularly tough to stay motivated and on track with their studies. Year 11 and 12’s understandably may be particularly stressed out.

We’ll keep updating you whenever possible with news from the universities and TAC’s that could encourage them to stay positive. In the meantime we’ve put together a few resources that you can either share with your students or provide you with some inspiration to help students (and yourself) to get through this period.

Get ahead

 

You could also encourage your students to:

  • Plan an alternative schoolies or post lockdown celebration
  • Year 11’s set some goals for Year 12 and create a study plan to make the best use of your time
  • Start or complete projects they’d always had planned but never had time to dedicate before
  • Ask some thought provoking questions about what pathway they’d like to take after school and why
  • Research uni or VET courses they’d like to apply for
  • Start pulling together the documentation for any applications including tertiary studies, scholarships etc
  • Create or update their resume
  • Think about their core skills
  • what are they good at and how to include it on your resume
  • what areas could do with some improvement and how will they achieve that
  • If they’d like to go to uni they could take some time to read the apply to uni guide that’s just been released and plan what they need to do
  • Spend some time looking after their physical and mental health
