This box provides information, advice and guidance in reference to university and higher education. The resources were developed by The University of Reading for Study Higher.
Teachers or school staff can use this box for lessons as it contains presentations and lesson plans for 3 topics. There are timings in the plans and if you were to cover all of the topics it totals five hours, so you can divide the sessions as appropriate. The areas covered are:
The 23 ‘Right Fit’ subject specific career guide booklets can also be used individually, perhaps as a five minute tutor activity, to help students to understand how the study of a particular subject e.g. art could lead to a career.
All state schools across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Swindon are eligible to receive a box.
Schools outside these regions can still apply for the resources but they will be sent digitally via email.
