Training

Researchers are supported, through training and individualised guidance, to deliver a course of university-style tutorials to small groups of pupils.

For pupils aged 13 and above, they design and deliver programmes based on their own research. For pupils aged between 9 and 12, researchers deliver a pre-designed programme which is pitched at the appropriate level for these learners.  

Our training programme is delivered by qualified teachers and experienced PhD researchers. It uses pedagogical theory and applies this to practical teaching strategies, as well as providing support for tutors to design their own programme of learning and assessment. All tutors also take part in a professional induction, including an Enhanced Disclosure DBS Check.
