Teachers, Advisors and Higher Education Practitioners

Improving pupil outcomes is at the heart of our work we do in schools. We help students decide if higher education is right for them, while focusing on attainment raising and character education.

Teacher helping pupils in classroom

We provide two programmes to support learners throughout their education journey:

  • Primary outreach programme for Year 5 & 6
  • Secondary outreach programme for Year 7- 11

The primary outreach programme is aimed at Year 5 and 6 and introduces the concept and purpose of university. Pupils will have the opportunity to discuss and challenge some of the general myths surrounding higher education, the programme concludes with an interactive visit to the NTU's Clifton Campus.

The secondary outreach programme builds on the primary programme, with Year 7 and 8 sessions providing more information about routes into higher education and student life. Further sessions in Years 9, 10 and 11 focus on skills development, decision making and life beyond GCSE's. There is also an opportunity for Year 8 pupils to visit NTU's City Campus.

Parents and carers will be invited to join us at key transition and decision points for family learning events including our Exploring University Together events which take place annually at both University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University campuses.

Our provision specifically targets young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and is free for your pupils.
