The Middle Years Programme (commonly abbreviated to MYP) allows teenagers to indulge in some creative licence and pursue their interests during their education. Even though it may seem like the projects are fun, interesting and nothing to do with educational development, these initiatives really do bring something to the table in the way of key skills that will make kids employable in the future.
For example, let’s say that you are a girl and that you decide to throw an elaborate fashion show in the school hall. It’s understandable that you will need excellent teamwork and communication skills so you can convey what you are looking for. In addition, when problems arise because there is a model off sick or there’s another problem, your ability to solve issues that appear will shine through. After all, if everything went plain sailing, that would be too easy!
In addition, mathematics does come into everything. When you are measuring dresses or timing the sequences for the programme, you will be applying number in a variety of different ways. Meanwhile, if you’re wondering how you can flaunt your IT skills, doing the marketing materials and creating posters that will publicise your talent will be perfect.
MYPs are a great way to develop as a well-rounded individual. It’s an important part of the year for many teenagers, and all of the key skills associated with this module can be implemented into a variety of different projects. If you’re looking for ideas, be sure to ask your tutor.
