Students in Classrooms - Primary

Students in Classrooms make a difference in local schools. We recruit carefully selected students form Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham who will be positive role models for your pupils. Our students will support pupil attainment and character development, whilst increasing awareness of higher education and the opportunities it can offer.

Schools have found that students bring enthusiasm, energy and subject expertise to the classroom and give valuable support to teachers. Some found their participation in the scheme helped improve links with further and higher education institutions, and help contribute to raising aspiration and attainment of their pupils.
