Insight into Teaching is an initiative to give current Oxford University students the opportunity to spend a few days in a local school experiencing school life, observing and then (if appropriate) contributing to teaching a lesson.
If your school would like to participate in the expanding Insight into Teaching programme please contact us.
Gaining experience and informing decisions: To give Oxford University students a taste of what a career in teaching could offer, not only to discover whether or not they wish to teach, but also to discern which part of the education sector might best suit them.
Inspiring school pupils: Giving pupils access to university students. Some placement students have delivered, for example, extension activities on their experience of university life and admissions.
Building connections: To strengthen links between schools and the University of Oxford, and the Careers Service in particular.
