Lesson starter activities

1.  Ask students to demonstrate with a show of hands, who is interested in going to university vs studying an apprenticeship. Then ask them about what they know about each area.
Take them through the presentation. Afterwards, ask them in groups to write down three things they have learned and share these with the class.

2. Most slides are framed with a question, ask students what they think the answer is to each question before showing them the next slide. Afterwards, talk them through the slides to see if they answered correctly.
