Has anyone's year 11 DD been on one of these courses? They describe it as 'soft skills'. Does anyone know of anyone who has done the course. What do they learn? Did they learn a lot from it and think it worthwhile?
Any information gratefully received! Thanks.

I did the Headstart course when I was 17, went on to study civil engineering. It was a brilliant week and really got me engaged and thinking about my choices.
