Here at Boomerang Education, we’ve noticed that, frustratingly, opportunities for young people haven’t been very obvious to the students themselves.
This is where Carpe Diem comes in.
What is Carpe Diem?
Carpe Diem is a youth initiative that showcases hundreds of nation-wide competitions, youth programmes and work experience opportunities to young people.
Students can simply head directly to the Carpe Diem online area.
Here, students will find categories, from English, to Higher Education, to Art & Design.
These are filled with opportunities to explore both in and out of school.
I’m a teacher, how can I get involved?
There are a number of ways you can get involved in this exciting new project:
- Tell your students about Carpe Diem. This is the quickest and easiest way to spread the word in school. We want young people to get involved in as many exciting new opportunities as possible!
- Incorporate aspects into your lesson plans. For example, you could sign your class up for the Big History Project. Why not take a look at the ‘English’ category and set one of the creative writing competitions as a homework task?
Carpe Diem in school planners
The great thing about Boomerang school planners is that they promote all of these fabulous Carpe Diem opportunities on every page.
This means that students can read about things like the St John Ambulance Cadet Program or the BBC Proms Inspire Scheme, as they look through their homework diary.
