Activities for Year 8 students
These events and activities encourage Year 8 pupils to progress to further and higher education. We have many informative events for young people to take part in.
Royal Institution maths masterclass series 2013
For the more able Year 8 pupils with a keen interest in maths, the Royal Institution maths masterclass series runs over 4 Saturday mornings during April and May. It's a great opportunity for young people to develop their interest in maths. We provide opportunities to learn about topics such as the maths involved in bell ringing and origami. The series ends with a celebration of achievement event where young people share their success with family, friends and teachers.

These visits run every Friday afternoon (term time) at our campus. They help raise the aspirations of young people.

A great opportunity to develop teamwork and presentation skills in a fun way.

Students into schools
The student volunteers into schools programme provides additional support for teaching staff working in primary, secondary and further education.
Teesside University students, with a keen interest in working with young people, can come to your school or college to work with your students through one-to-one mentoring, small group work or supporting the teacher within the classroom.
There is no charge to the school for taking a student volunteer and each work placement will be negotiated between the school and the student before the placement starts. Each student is asked to commit to a minimum of a six week placement working a minimum of two hours per week.
