Choosing where to go to university can be a life-changing decision. We hugely value the role that teachers and careers advisors play in encouraging students to consider their options and make informed decisions. To support teachers, Oxford for West Midlands provides a range of continuous professional development and learning activities, some of which are accredited. We also provide a wide range of free online teaching materials to supplement classroom teaching and challenge highly-able students.
Our CPD for teachers of students aged 16 to 18 relates to providing information about admissions, and supporting students applying to Oxford. Increasingly we are also working with Key Stage 3 and 4 teachers, helping with the development of curriculum support materials that will benefit a wide range of students.
