‘Why teach?’ workshops
Designed to engage males and ethnic minority groups into a teaching career. This 'Why teach?' talk will cover everything your students need to know about training routes, qualifying, and what being a good teacher entails. Workshops are held at your school or college and bespoke content can be included on request.
Our conference days welcome large numbers of students from schools and colleges to the university to hear guest speakers and senior lecturers discussing ‘hot topics’ in their fields. Guests will meet current students and get first-hand advice on choosing subjects and applying for university.
Subject specific presentations with graduate advocates
With a focus on art and design, media, and sports and exercise, your students can learn more about their subjects of interest and relevant careers from recent graduates. These graduates have first-hand experience of these course areas and are great role models. Please enquire for more details.
Fun activities designed to provide inspiration and insight into the world of higher education. Workshops include ‘My Future Selfie’, ‘A-Z of courses’, ‘Your Universe-ity’, a Top Trumps-style future prospects game, and our ever popular Budgeting Board Game. Download activity details.
