The Education Empowerment Week Key Takeaways
Last week, we had our Education Empowerment week focused around helping you get ready for a new, successful academic year. In today’s blog post, we’ll be going over some takeaways from each session we held during the week so if you missed a session and want to find out what we learnt or simply want to add to your notes, then keep reading for our takeaways.
Day 1 – Doceo x EY Building Confidence & Resilience Webinar:
We’ll cover three main takeaways from this session: being afraid and taking action anyway, combatting imposter syndrome and developing a personal brand.
Your personal brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room. When you know what your brand is, you will have an impactful narrative that sums up the essence of you. It’s useful to think about how you want to be known in the next school year. Do you want to be known as the person who participates fully in group projects or always contributes during lessons when they can? Then start doing these things and do them consistently.

Day 2 – Let’s Talk About Uni with Aspiring Interns.
What would our panellists say to someone starting university this year?
Day 3 – Back-2-School Webinar: Parent’s Edition:
Day 4 – Matters of the Mind Reloaded:
Whether you’re going into Year 10 or starting university, it is important to look after your wellbeing during the academic year and be attentive to what you need to do to look after yourself. A useful way to think about this is through the concept of holistic wellbeing. Holistic wellbeing focuses on 8 things: Physical, Emotional, Financial, Social, Occupational, Purpose, Intellectual and Environmental wellbeing.
