Monday 13 July
We have an exciting day built around moving your students from Year 11 to 6th Form, and then from 6th Form to University. We have a mix of both University and School Librarian speakers. Our venue is The University of Kent, Canterbury. CT2 7NU. Room to be confirmed in posting to delegates.
Justine Rush, subject librarian at the University (and ex school librarian) will be speaking on University transition skills (to be confirmed)
Sarah Pavey (ex school librarian, now independent trainer) will be speaking on the topic ‘I made it to the Sixth Form – but I never expected this!’
Jane Knott Vice Chair SLA, and school librarian from the Norton Knatchbull School in Ashford will be speaking on the topic ‘EPQ: teaching transferable skills’
The afternoon will have a panel discussion “Ask a Librarian” and short presentations from you, the participants. The panel will have Sarah Pavey, one University, one Public and one current School Librarian to answer your questions. There will be the opportunity to give a short 10 minute presentation on your own experiences, or to share materials. Please book these beforehand with firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be the opportunity to photocopy and share materials on a table at the back of the room. Short presentations already confirmed are: Daren Kearl from Kent Libraries who will talk about how public libraries can help Sixth Form students, and Jane Alderson-Rice who will talk about how the University integrates International students who all arrive at the library with different skill levels
Finally, if you have time, the day will be rounded off by a visit to the Templeman Library at the University.
Lunch will be provided. You may come to only one half of the day, although the price will remain the same. The price will be only £10 for CILIP members and £15 for non members.
