Now that the deadline for university applications has passed the time has come to begin delivering sessions on the ins and outs of applying for student finance. I have sourced most of my resources from the Direct Gov website which has a wealth of pre-prepared lesson materials including YouTube videos, a ppt and a quiz.
I’m going to use one of the video at the start of the lesson to introduce the facts about student finance and to promote discussion within the group.
I am then going to talk through the PPT to re-enforce what has already been introduced in the video whilst adding additional details.
At the end of the lesson I am going to use the quiz to test students knowledge and to create one final chance to dispel any misconceptions the applicants may have about how much money they are entitled to and how they will have to pay it back.
