Teacher Support Programme

Trinity Online

Teacher Support Programme

The programme takes place online to enable teachers from state schools to join us at their convenience and is made up of six one and a half hour live sessions each taking place after the school day. Whilst we begin the programme in January each year, we encourage teachers to join at any point or just for those sessions they would find most helpful. Whilst we offer a completion certificate for those attending all sessions there is no requirement to do so.

In these sessions, we aim to provide up to date practical information and guidance relating to the Oxford application process and the purpose of each stage, for example, the admissions tests and interviews. 

We also have the broader aim of providing teachers with guidance that may help them to support their pupils in all higher education applications, as well as those who may have the potential to apply to Oxford.

The one-and-a-half-hour twilight sessions include:

  • An introduction to the University of Oxford and the admission process
  • Relevant enrichment activities for pupils – raising attainment and enhancing future academic success
  • Supporting students through the process of writing a competitive personal statement
  • Writing the teacher reference – what high tariff universities are looking for
  • The admissions tests – supporting your pupils to prepare
  • The interview – supporting your pupils to prepare

We particularly welcome colleagues from non-selective state schoolteachers who have little or no experience of the University of Oxford, pupil progression to the Russell Group or Higher Education in general.
