College Enrichment Programme –
The college’s Enrichment Programme consists of Academic Enhancement and Progression, Hobbies/Interests, and Health & Well-being, branching off into various societies to give students a great overall college experience.
How does the enrichment programme work? –
Students can attend as many different societies and clubs within the college’s Enrichment Programme as they like in order to enhance their knowledge and skills within specific areas. In particular, Academic Enhancement and Progression will help students achieve at least one of the following:
- Develop new and important skills
- Stretch and challenge academically
- Help to improve grades with study support
- Build up an effective experience portfolio
- Enhance UCAS personal statements
Whilst Hobbies/Interests and Health and Wellbeing can help students achieve the following:
- Spark a new interest
- Meet new people, try new things, and have fun!
- Build communication skills
- Increase confidence
- Decrease stress levels
- Reduce the negative hormones that are responsible for lethargy and depression
Activities will take place at different times throughout the week. Some activities will last for a number of weeks, and others may be a one-day event. Sessions will also take place at different times throughout the week. You must check when your session takes place because, once you have registered for an activity, you will be expected to attend for the duration of the programme, and your attendance will be recorded.
As well as academic excellence, the college will now also recognise students who go above and beyond the expected standards. This will be part of a new Enrichment stamp/voucher system that will be introduced soon.
For participating in the Enrichment Programme, you have the opportunity to attain vouchers. Every time you attend a society/club at JCC, you earn a stamp from the teacher/tutor leading the session.
The following vouchers can be attained by accruing a number of stamps on your enrichment card:
24 stamps = £10 voucher
48 stamps = £20 voucher
64 stamps = £30 voucher
