University student volunteers will go into local schools and run a homework club that will encourage and inspire KS3 pupils with their English studies.
CSC and First Campus have invited the English departments of some local schools to take part in the 2019 MAT Pilot Project.
The project aims to inspire KS3 MAT learners in English, using a HE student workforce, to deliver an after school club at the start of the spring term of 2018/19. Colleagues from CSC have provided training for the undergraduates to prepare them for delivery, including observing sector leading practice. The afterschool club will run for a period of 6 weeks.
The after school club will begin with an induction at each school and an introduction to the teaching staff and pupils. On the 15th May the pupils involved will present their creative pieces in a showcase to celebrate success.
