Information for teachers and careers advisers

If you're a teacher, or advise students on any aspect of higher education we can support you through each step of your students' educational journey.

Primary

We work with primary schools in Lewisham and neighbouring London boroughs. If you would like us to deliver a session to your Key Stage 2 pupils either at school, on campus or online, please get in touch.

Secondary

Working with organisations such as the Brilliant Club, Team Up Tutoring, and Aim Higher London, and directly with schools, we offer a range of talks and workshops that can be delivered at school, on campus, or online. We also attend careers and HE fairs, in schools, for pupils and parents. 

We mostly work with secondary schools in London and the South East and our focus is supporting state school pupils from under-represented groups, who are eligible for pupil premium support or free school meals.

Alchemy is an innovative project that is led by Mikey Kirkpatrick from the Department of Music and jointly funded by Deptford Forward and Goldsmiths. The project provides mentoring and music workshops for pupils at two local secondary schools and enables them to use industry-standard music production facilities.

We also run Discovery Days for students in school years 7-10 and Holiday Clubs for students in years 8-10.

If you have an event or you would like to know more about our provision for secondary schools please get in touch.

Post-16

This is our broadest area of provision and we work with state and independent schools and sixth form colleges across the UK.

We attend school and college-based fairs and deliver IAG talks and workshops (choosing a course/university, student funding and finance, student life, personal statements, interview and portfolio prep). We also attend selected UCAS exhibitions and UK University Search fairs.  

Subject to availability, Goldsmiths academics can deliver subject talks and webinars that reflect current research, or cover topics that are part of the A-level, BTEC or IB syllabuses. Goldsmiths staff regularly feature as speakers on Channel Talent.

University experience

We also offer a range of projects and events that enable sixth form students to experience university before they apply:

 *Students applying to these projects must meet widening participation eligibility criteria.

Pre-entry careers guidance

We offer access to our Careers Service through our Pre-entry careers education and guidance

Other activities

During the year, we run events for mature students, virtual schools and care experienced students, young carers, and students with disabilities. We can also provide one-to-one advice to students from these groups who want to find out more about the study experience or would like some advice about student finance or their UCAS application. Please get in touch with any queries or for more information.

Keeping in touch
