Applying to university is a major life choice.
As education professionals, it's understandable that you want to make sure your students have access to as much information and support as possible. If you work in a school or college, we have a range of ways we can help you.
Talks and workshops
Looking for someone to answer your students' questions about university? Depending on your needs, we can offer virtual or in-person discussions with our expert outreach team. Talks are usually around 30 minutes and can fit into your assembly or tutor times, including Q&As.
We offer talks and workshops on topics including:
- How to research a university and course
- Degree apprenticeships
- Vocational HE options
- Making the most of Open Days, fairs and virtual events
- Student life at university
- Understanding the UCAS process
- How to write an impressive personal statement
Parents and carers evenings
Parents and carers play a vital role in supporting a student's journey to university. Our free events are the perfect way to get families engaged, and can be arranged to support parents events organised by your school or college (delivered virtually or in person). All you need to do is promote it to parents - we'll handle everything else.
Study events and careers fairs
A staple of the academic year is the post-16 fair. If you're looking for potential exhibitors, we're more than happy to attend. We can bring information on our Portsmouth and London campuses, as well as our outstanding teaching. Alongside exhibiting, we can also offer talks at the event, as outlined above.
Training for teachers and advisors
Teachers and advisors have an important role in helping students achieve their full potential. We offer a range of free training, conferences and events for educators. Our aim is to support you to teach, inspire and support your students' learning. Join our free CPD teachers hub.
Online resources for KS2 to KS5
We have lots of online resources to support your students when they're considering their future. Our School Leavers' Hub for key stage 4 students provides advice on topics like study skills, choosing a subject and decisions at post-16. We also have a suite of resources for the classroom, including workshops and lesson plans.
