Students into Schools

Through this scheme, students can undertake a placement in a school as part of their degree or as a voluntary activity.

Our Students into Schools programme offers students the opportunity to develop their skills in an educational setting. It’s a well-established scheme in which over 6000 undergraduates and postgraduates have helped to raise the attainment and aspirations of young people in more than 70 schools and colleges across Leeds and West Yorkshire.

How does it help students?

Students can choose to participate in the programme as part of their degree and receive academic credit or as a voluntary activity aside from their degree. The placements benefit the students because they:

  • get the opportunity to find out if teaching is the career for them
  • receive training delivered by education professionals
  • develop transferable skills relevant to an array of graduate jobs
  • can give back to the local community by helping with young people’s education in areas that need it most.
