Schools project offers A-level support

Thirty-seven high school teachers recently attended a two-day course at the University to forge closer links with local schools – and many are now interested in developing joint projects with the University.

The event offered science and technology teachers practical workshops designed to support A-level study. These included simple experiments which could easily be adapted for the classroom.

It also offered them a taste of specialist degree programmes and practical help on employability skills, together with advice on progression into employment from specialist degrees. The event was jointly organised by the City and Regional Office and the School of Process, Environmental and Materials Engineering, the School of Textiles and the Procter Department of Food Science and was funded by Leeds Training and Enterprise Council.
