It is great to see that many of you have started getting involved in groups in school and are even in the process of starting new groups. These are a good way to gain some experience, but in order to have a CAS portfolio that will really help you get into the further studies/work you should have experiences that take you beyond the school.
A good place to look for these is: https://www.volontarbyran.org
Even though most of the opportunities here are written in Swedish it is possible for people who don't speak Swedish to apply. I will try to publish a few of the most appropriate examples when I see them - but you can also look yourself.
Here are a couple from this week:
Uppsala Photo Festival - 21st to 24th of Sept
Uppsala is just a train ride away. They need volunteers to work at this event and have even published the details in English! Check it out here and apply for a great service experience. Really great chance to meet photographers from all around the world.
Help in the Red Cross Shop
The Red Cross has a shop at Hornstull and they need volunteers. A good way to practice a little Swedish - we have had non-Swedish speakers volunteer for this previously.
Stockholm Film Festival
It has become a bit of a tradition for students at SIS to help out at this exciting film festival in Stockholm. Great for film enthusiasts as you get to see the films for free if you do enough shifts! They even have the information in English on their webpage
I am currently working on a schedule for the individual interviews. They will be starting next week on Weds if all goes to plan. I will send the times out on MB and put a copy on the pink notice board.
I will also run a session on the project during advisory on the 18th of September. I expect all students to have started their project this term. Remember, you must have at least one project and it:
- must be done in collaboration with someone else,
- should be planned by you and your fellow group members,
- needs to take more than a month.
- can be any or a combination of the strands - creativity, activity and service.
- documented using the CAS stages document. You can find the document for recording the stages on the pages on the right - Links to CAS documents. It is a view only document so you will need to take a copy in order to edit.
