This course provides an excellent opportunity for people who wish to gain experience in teaching. Some of the aims of the scheme are:

  • To develop a range of students' skills and to offer an early taste of teaching to those interested in pursuing it as a career.
  • To help students gain confidence in communicating their subject, develop strong organisational and interpersonal skills, and understand how to address the needs of individual learners.
  • To give students experience of devising and developing projects and using teaching methods appropriate to engaging the relevant pupil age group and ability they are working with.
  • To help inspire a new generation of prospective undergraduates by providing role models for school pupils.
  • To help students convey the excitement of their own learning at University to pupils by showing them the long-term applications of school studies.
  • To help teachers by providing an assistant who can work with and support pupils at various point on the ability spectrum.
