School Liason
The Department of Earth Sciences is actively developing a new Schools Liaison Programme for Earth Science teachers and pupils. We are aiming to provide educational support encompassing elements of the National Curriculum and subject-specific science examinations (at GCSE , AS , and A2 levels), in addition to UCAS /career briefings.

We hope to be able to offer a variety of educational resources in the form of short (INSET) courses for teachers, practical coursework exercises and materials, web-based teaching resources and residential Earth Science courses. This programme will be supplemented by other activities including lecturing staff offering to visit schools to deliver thematic talks and practical exercises/demonstrations and inviting school parties to the new state-of-the-art Earth Science department to see science implemented in the working environment. We are always happy to organize tours of our facilities or provide help and advice to teachers or students wishing to apply for a degree through UCAS.
