Engage children in learning with subject experts!
Sharing knowledge of their specialist subjects, our enthusiastic postgraduate volunteers will enhance the curriculum, by delivering specially prepared lessons. These lessons will help to foster a love for learning and raise children's aspirations.
Starting in Summer Term 2, the subject options are; Gothic Tales: From Haunted Houses to Aliens, Language Magic, Physiotherapy: Move Better, Feel Better, and Saintly Saxons and Volcanic Vikings.
All projects will include an Introduction Session, where our student volunteers will introduce key concepts about higher education and reveal the project topic.
