HeppSY+ Scholars Plus is a non-residential programme that aims to promote meaningful engagement with university for pupils, allowing them to experience the social and academic sides of 'being a student' over a more sustained period. The programme is primarily focused on pupils who have completed The Brilliant Club's Scholars Programme.
The programme ran over twice in the 2017-18 academic year: Easter and Summer 2018. Thirteen pupils took part in each programme, spending three days at the University of Sheffield, with access to a range of academic and social activities. The programme aimed to build pupils' confidence, improve their knowledge and understanding about university life, and support their informed choices about applying to university. The activities were focused on developing pupils' research skills, independent learning and presentation skills through a series of tutorials and interactive activities, culminating in a presentation showcase.
