Session 4

Activity 4.1

Activity 4.1 Thinking about something for me

Timing: Time: 15–20 minutes

This works well as a group activity, and some facilitators have said that this is a pivotal point in the course where carers’ motivation might flag without support. This is also a good opportunity to introduce Open Pathways to Higher Education [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .

If you have computer and internet access for the group, you could combine this with Activity 5.1 Using the computer to explore ideas.

Learners don’t have to identify a specific course, but can begin to think about what other things they might be interested in doing. They can use the table below to record their ideas, or use magazines or the internet to find text and images to compile into a collage or montage.
