New date for Future Fest – 16th June 2022
February 7, 2022 / 10:15 am
We’re excited to confirm the new date for Future Fest this year will be Thursday 16th June 2022
Future Fest provides an opportunity for students & parents to meet online with service providers, with a view to their future living, leisure and working arrangements.
For over twenty years, Future Fest has provided a vital and successful information service for our students to investigate options available to them when they leave Treloar’s.
Parents of students from sixth form up to final college year are invited to book appointments with up to 5 different service providers.
To help guide choices, we’ve compiled an online exhibitor directory, packed full of information to support our students with their decision making and future plans.
We know that sorting out the next stage for a young person when they leave the school or college can be very daunting. We work closely to support our students. Their Progress and Transition Coordinator can offer support and advice at every stage of the journey. Many future living providers & day services have waiting lists, so it helps to start researching these options early. Future Fest is just the start of the process.
The Progress and Transition team received some wonderful feedback from parents who took part in Future Fest last October.
‘I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for organising such a fantastic virtual event. Please thank the team involved in facilitating breakout rooms,they did a marvelous job’
‘It has been a pleasure to know that there was a second Future Fest this year, since it is an excellent opportunity to get in touch with providers both already known and new to us.’
‘I really want to thank all of you at Treloar for all the hard work in putting together all the information and for making it so easy for us to get in touch with external providers. Now more than ever things are difficult and complicated outside and gathering information and taking choices can sometimes feel daunting. I am extremely grateful for all your help: having such a service from Treloar’s transition team is invaluable.’
The online exhibitor directory is available to all families and students who would like to get a head start on planning for their life after Treloar’s.
If you have any further questions, please contact our Transitions team.
