Recruitment and Outreach

Teachers and advisers

The Recruitment and Outreach team recognise the important role that teachers and careers advisers play in helping young people to make informed decisions about their future education and careers.

Our team provides a service to schools and colleges and are available to support with many issues and activities relating to Higher Education in general and information related to the University of Portsmouth in particular.

Throughout the year we run a number of events specifically for teachers and advisers. Please let us know if there are specific CPD requirements for your school that you think we can help with.

Every year we hold a free one-day event for anyone advising students about higher education. You will be able to update knowledge, share best practice and find out more about what we offer here at the University of Portsmouth. The programme will feature an external keynote speaker as well as opportunities for you to tailor your programme, with a selection of sessions and academic department visits available. Full programme details will be available soon.

Subject Specific Teacher CPD

Using the expertise of our colleagues in academic departments across the University, we have put together a number of teacher CPD events for subject specific teachers. In the past we have run events in Physics, English and Computing, with the most recent events linked to Cosmology and Modern Foreign Languages and a Drama workshop delivered in conjunction with the Fluid Motion Theatre Company and the RSC.

Public lectures and events

The University hosts a number of public lectures and events throughout the year that teachers are welcome to attend to enhance your subject knowledge or even bring a group of students. For more information visit the University of Portsmouth events.

Supporting your events in school or college

Our team are also available to attend other events in your schools. These include, but are not restricted to, Parents Events and Careers/Options Evenings.
