These free student-led activities are facilitated by the partnership between the
UEA Students' Union and UEA Outreach team.

We aim to provide activities to help young people develop their knowledge, break down barriers and improve confidence by providing them with relatable role models -  our students.

What better way to do this than by hearing from UEA students themselves?

What are student-led activities?

These activities can range from programmes to one-off workshops. We work with UEA clubs and societies, that offer a range of opportunities (check them out below!) Some of these activities can support you in PSHE and citizenship curriculums, but the best part is, your pupils will be hearing from the authentic voices of the students themselves.

Why should you sign up?

  • A great opportunity for your students to get access to relatable role models, that can share their authentic experiences to inspire your pupils
  • Break down those barriers of higher education
  • Build your pupils’ knowledge and skills in a variety of topics
  • Help your pupils realise their own potential
  • Fill your form/tutor or PSHE time with meaningful experiences

KS2-3 Activities

We want children to have a basic understanding of nutrition and to know why it's important to make healthy choices now and how it will help to prevent disease in the future. We appreciate not every child has the opportunity to learn about healthy food at home and there is little time to squeeze it into school curriculums. Through examples and demonstrations, this workshop provides them with the fundamentals of living healthily, how they can achieve this and give them the tools to talk to their families and make healthy decisions.

You can read the full brief for the Healthy Living Workshop and how it fulfils the PSHE curriculum.

KS3-5 Activities

Headucate is passionate about raising awareness of mental health - their aim is to stamp out stigma, to tackle discrimination and to provide effective signposting to help and support. These workshops are developed by qualified Mental Health First Aiders to strengthen mental health awareness within schools. They're a safe space to open up discussions about mental health, promote awareness and wellbeing. The workshop can be delivered to a class or year group at a time, either online or face-to-face.

Next steps

If your application is successful, we will be in touch. In order to ensure we measure our impact on young people, we ask that you send us a list of all pupils who will be taking part in the Programme, in advance of it starting.

There will be a digital survey for pupils to complete at the beginning and again at the end of the Programme. We ask that you give students the opportunity during school time to complete these short surveys.
