KS2 Learning Leaders

KS2 Learning Leaders

Applications for the Spring Term projects are now closed!

Our Learning Leaders programme engages children in learning, through sessions delivered by current University of Nottingham students

Sharing knowledge of their specialist subjects, our enthusiastic undergraduate volunteers will enhance the curriculum by designing and delivering subject based sessions. These sessions will promote a love of learning and help to raise children’s aspirations.

All projects start with an introduction to what university is, reflected in the volunteers’ own personal student experiences. This provides context for the subject based, student led sessions.

To complete your Learning Leaders project, we are offering eligible schools the opportunity to attend A Day of University Life campus visit, which you will receive more information about via email.
