These sessions are quite flexible and can be adjusted depending on the needs of your students and school. Please get in touch if you have any questions about the aims of each session.
Alongside our year-long remote teacher CPD programme ,we can provide one-off sessions for teachers in school at any time of the year. In these sessions, we aim to provide up to date information and guidance relating to the Oxford application process and the purpose of each stage, for example the admissions tests and interviews. We offer guidance to teachers and other professionals about how they can best support their pupils in all higher education applications, as well as those who may have the potential to apply to Oxford.
We particularly welcome invitations from schools and teachers who have little experience of the University of Oxford or low pupil progression to the Russell Group or higher education in general. These sessions can be planned around the demands of the school day and as such could take place after the teaching day, during staff meetings or on training days. They can be held in-person or remotely.
Here’s an example of what a teacher session might include:
The Oxford application process.
The UCAS teacher reference – the essentials.
How to offer students guidance and feedback on the personal statement.
Relevant super-curricular activity, the EPQ & work experience.
The admissions tests and interview.
General Q&A for all teachers
