Students in Schools

Registration for 2017 -18 is now open!

The University of Reading has a long standing reputation for working with local schools. The 'Students in Schools' scheme which was formerly 'Student Tutoring' has been established for over 20 years and continues to thrive.

.The scheme enables students to volunteer to work alongside teachers in local schools with the aim of raising the aspirations of school pupils and encouraging them to continue iStudent_in_classroomnto higher education.

Each year several hundred students visit over 40 local schools including primary, secondary and special schools where they help make a positive difference to the learning experience of young people.

Feedback from students, teachers and school pupils is overwhelmingly positive. Students gain valuable experience in communicating their knowledge and ideas, as well as improving their self-confidence. Teachers welcome the additional support in the classroom and the opportunity to provide extra support to their pupils while school pupils enjoy having a new face and interaction in the classroom.
