Ministry of Defence Outreach Programme
Six of our A level students were invited to the MOD headquarters in Whitehall to celebrate their achievement on the MOD outreach programme that was hosted at Haringey Sixth Form College earlier in the year. They shared the stage with number of other students from colleges around the country that had also taken part in the programme.
During the outreach programme, students had to play the roles of front bench government ministers, including the Prime Minister, and respond to a crisis that was unfolding in a fictional third world country. Students had to use critical thinking, leadership and teamwork skills to develop a response that resolved the crisis scenario with a humanitarian focus. The winning team were rewarded for their efforts by being presented with their certificates at the MOD by a senior military official at the prestigious venue.
Lydwine Ngahane Beyala, one of the students from the winning team, accepted the certificates on behalf of the college and commented; ‘It was a great opportunity to learn about how the government responds to complex issues abroad, and it will definitely help us with our personal statements and applying to university.’
Haringey Sixth Form College Principal, Russ Lawrance added "at Haringey Sixth Form College we believe that having access to these kind of activites is important for our young people because they deserve every opportunity to succeed. We want to make the most of our young talent, these trips and all the activity the College does is very much about opening doors."
