KAN Autumn Meet-up 2023
On Tuesday 17 October KAN ran its Autumn meet-up day at Sevenoaks School.
After some delicious refreshments, morning activities entailed workshops on Unifrog, sessions about post-18 and post-16 options delivered by Pathways CTM, a workshop on motivation from 2-3 Degrees, and a Q&A with the mentors.
Following an excellent lunch, students could choose from a variety of sessions. We covered mental wellbeing and managing stress with Kooth, interview skills delivered by Talent Tap, who am I and dealing with imposter syndrome with 2-3 degrees, and choosing university courses and personal statements with Exeter University.
During the day, we also recognised the commitment of certain KAN students with certificates of commendation.
A huge thank you needs to go to all the incredible contributors, but also the KAN school-leads and the mentors who are the backbone of KAN. We had very good attendance and student feedback was very positive overall:
“2-3 degrees made me feel more confident about myself.”
“The Interview Skills session was delivered very well and it introduced me to new ideas.”
“The mental health session gave me coping skills on how to deal with anxiety.”
“My favourite session was the post-16 options because it gave me ideas on what I can do after my GCSEs.”
