Activities for Year 9 students
These events and activities encourage Year 9 students to progress to further and higher education. We have many informative events for young people to take part in.
These visits run every Friday afternoon (term-time) at our campus. They help raise the aspirations of young people. Teesside University students work with the young people on a variety of team activities including University Challenge and designing their own university. A great opportunity to develop teamwork and presentation skills in a fun way.

It provides the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and develop an understanding of both the creative and technical skills involved in this exciting subject area. Typical workshop activities include e-journalism, networks, 3D animation and photo editing.

More about our girls and gadgets conference
A wide range of subject-specific sessions are offered in these interactive, practical workshops. Pupils experience a new and exciting way of learning in a university setting. This event has been designed to coincide with option choices in schools and introduce subjects to pupils that they can choose to study post-16.
An opportunity for pupils and parents to dicuss courses and qualifications with a University representative. You can discuss how Year 9 options might affect future ambitions in both further and higher education. We can give a formal presentation or provide a stand where parents and pupils can ask individual questions more informally.
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.
