CPD Opportunities for Teachers

Browse our collection of resources that help teachers support students to progress to HE.

We've put together a collection of resources to help teachers support their students to progress to Higher Education. Through our membership of the Russell Group we're also able to offer a wide range of free teacher CPD that you can access at any time.

Supporting Students with Personal Statements

Watch our video for tips on how you can support your students to craft the best personal statement for their university application.

We know that applying to university can be a stressful time for your students. We’ve prepared the ultimate Personal Statement Guide for Students and a Parents' Guide available to download.


Advancing Access

We're one of 24 leading universities who have collaborated with Advancing Access. We have developed free, interactive CPD resources to support teachers and advisers on topics such as:

  • how to help students choose a university and course
  • supporting students to apply to university
  • how the university admissions processes work
  • helping students make the right choices for post-16 study

Library Services CPD

Our Library Outreach Team hosts online CPD resources to support the use of primary resources in your teaching. You can also book CPD sessions in-school or on-campus.

Bespoke sessions for your school community

We're here to support you. We can draw upon University expertise from across the institution, including Admissions, Student Finance and our award-winning Careers Service. We have used this expertise to develop teacher-focussed sessions in collaboration with the teacher community.

Sessions may include (but are not limited to):

  • UCAS application process for referees and teachers
  • Contextual offers and supported entry routes: an overview
  • How to maximize Outreach programmes for your students

Get in touch to discuss sessions that may be helpful for your community of teachers and advisors.
