The LiNCHigher Award is a way for students in Lincolnshire schools to demonstrate independent learning and a commitment to higher education in years 10 and 11.
The award encourages students to independently engage with material related to higher education and supports the NERUPI Framework and Gatsby 7 objectives.
The award has been designed as a sustainable part of the careers programme in school, that pupils predominantly work on independently. The only additional administration required from school is the collection of award booklets with a teacher signature and the distribution of certificates.
The award ranks from students from bronze to gold, depending how much work a learner completes over the two years. Achieving the gold award culminates in drafting you’re their personal statement.
The LiNCHigher Award is also suited to learners on level 1 and 2 qualifications in further education. Learners can create their ‘portfolio’ by attending talks and events in school, by completing online modules on LiNCHigher Learning, and by completing their own research.
