Gap Year

 

A Gap Year can be a time for thinking, for personal development, for travelling, for acquiring a new skill, for earning money to help fund a future course of study or for voluntary work.  At Invicta, we encourage students to see the benefits of taking a Gap Year after Year 13 and through the Careers Department we help them tailor their plans whatever they may be!  Students can choose to travel to help them to learn about different cultures, to improve language fluency, and to gain independence and maturity. 

There are a range of Gap Year projects available and students are advised of these through careers interviews and Options 18+ events in the school.  We also have links with schools abroad, who will happily support our students in securing an internship during a Gap Year experience.  Some of our students choose to take a Gap Year to develop further work experience, to help them confirm future plans or they do a further education course, often vocational, to extend their skills in an area of interest before moving on to academic study at university.

What the students say:

Invicta opened up the idea to me of taking a gap year through one of the Enrichment activities. Real Gap Experience, a gap year company, came in and showed us some great examples of the vast amount of opportunities that are on offer. This has led me in to taking a gap year when I leave, where I am planning to spend 6 months volunteering in a community in Nepal.  (Year 12 Student).
