Students in Classrooms

NTU Students in Classrooms – gain practical experience with our rewarding opportunities to work in local schools and colleges

Want to get involved in a rewarding scheme but  can't drop that part time job?
If this applies to you why not think about applying for one of our Students in Classrooms schemes!
NTU Students in Classrooms offer a range of opportunities to work with young people in local schools, colleges and here at the University.
There are three schemes:

Associates work alongside classroom teachers in:
  •    Primary schools
  •  Secondary schools
  •   Colleges

The aim of the Associates scheme is to provide positive role models and help to raise aspirations and attainment. Associates work with groups of learners, or on a one to one basis supporting pupils with things such as literacy activities or reading.
Associates may also get the opportunity to assist with some non-teaching aspects such as planning and preparation of lessons.

Mentors work on a one-to-one basis with students between the ages of 13 - 17 providing advice and guidance on:

  • Routes into higher education
  • Revision & exam technique
  • Planning & self-management skills
  • Motivation, self-confidence and much more.

The scheme has an overall aim to help to increase attainment levels and raise aspirations towards higher education. This is a good way to engage personally with students and know you're providing a service that may change lives.

Nottingham Trent University delivers a wide range of activities and events working in schools and colleges, as well as engaging parents, carers and members of the general public.
Ambassadors get involved with:

  • Raising awareness of post 16 opportunities and NTU
  • Supporting our outreach team with classroom activities out in schools and colleges
  • Helping at events such as University Open days & subject taster days
Overall, being a Student Ambassador involves spreading information and acting as a positive role model for the University. Students in Classrooms are looking for enthusiastic students who are proactive and will be fully committed to the scheme they apply for.

Please note that interested students must attend an awareness raising meeting to be eligible to apply. The meetings will be taking place across all three NTU campuses at the start of the next term, dates are available on the Students in Classrooms website.
