Our Outreach and Student Recruitment teams work with schools and colleges to help students explore the world of higher education and decide on the best route for their future. We work particularly closely with state schools in the West Midlands on a range of outreach activities to raise aspirations, improve motivation and encourage students to consider university.

A Level in-class Talks and Q&A
We have a series of A-Level talks which can be delivered via zoom by staff members to slot into your lessons (30 min talk plus time for questions).

Placement Opportunity - Geography in the Classroom
‘Geography in the Classroom’ is a third year module offered to our Undergraduate Geography students which runs from February to May. As part of this we link our students with a Geography department (either GCSE or A-Level) to observe and support the teacher and students. As part of their assessment they have to develop a resource pack to support student learning. We are currently looking for departments who would be willing to host a student (1/2 day per week for 10 weeks, Birmingham based). If you would like further details please email email@example.com
Geography and Earth Sciences Mentoring Scheme
We are currently organising a scheme for our Undergraduate students where they would apply to be a GCSE or A-Level mentor (related to Geography / Earth Sciences). For one semester, they would be linked with a school and offer small group support. If you would like further details please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Explore the Earth Sciences Virtual Classroom
The Lapworth Museum of Geology have hosted visits for Key stage 5 pupils in past years, to help provide targeted learning associated with the Geography and Geology curriculum. As direct visits are currently not possible, we would like to offer this to schools as a bespoke virtual classroom. The potential topics are outlined below, but if there is something specific you would like us to cover please let us know and we will try to find the expertise to provide some specialist input.
