Students in Classrooms - Primary

Students in Classrooms make a difference in local schools. We recruit carefully selected students from 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.

Learning Advocates

Learning Advocates support classroom learning:

  • Supporting teachers within the class, or assisting with small group learning or offering 1:1 support
  • Inspiring, supporting and motivating pupils to learn


This programme is delivered in school. School targeting applies.


Placements are January – April for 10 weeks. Students will be in school for a full day or two half days per week.

Teacher, Croft Academy

The Learning Advocates that I have worked with have been professional, supportive and extremely positive role models. They have given freely of their time, no task is too much and they are always cheerful and happy to help. Thank you for this - it means a lot to be able to rely on them in this capacity
