Future Leaders - Oxford Summer (14-17 years)
International House London is proud to be running our Future Leaders programme at our Young Learner Centre in Oxford for the second year in 2017. The programme is aimed at 14 - 17 year old students who are interested in exploring different career and academic options and also take advantage of the beautiful city of Oxford, famed for its academic heritage, students will stay at St Edward’s School in Oxford, alongside students from our other Young Learner programmes and therefore have an opportunity to mix with other students from all over the world.
This course is aimed for teachers and their school groups; however, we can also accept individuals on this course (subject to booking numbers). Students should be at least B2 level of English. As part of the programme, students will work on a project that includes industry-related visits and exciting guest speakers, culminating in a presentation and prize giving ceremony. It is also a good opportunity for students on the IBDP to work towards their CAS requirements.

How it works
Teachers should register their interest for the summer programme. Once accepted you'll be given more details on the themes and required to choose a theme with your prospect group of students. We'll then send out pre-course materials detailing suggested projects (one a week for four weeks) to get your students prepared for the Future Leaders programme.
Class groups can choose between two different themes to work on during the two-week course:
- Entrepreneurship and leadership skills (business-related)
This project encourages students to explore contemporary skills such as debating, critical thinking, and team work. Students work in groups to build a business plan for a social enterprise that will benefit their community.
- Pre-University (a taste of studying at University level)
This project looks at admissions to UK universities: what they look for from students and what to include on applications. It also includes visits to UK universities, so students can experience what life is like at a UK university and be inspired. Working in groups, students build towards a presentation at the end of the course.
This course focusses on acknowledging the importance of certain themes like the environment, the digital age and poverty by building a project to benefit.
