What is the Supplementary Schools Project Teachers’ Toolkit?

The Supplementary Schools Project Teachers’ Toolkit is an online resource that has been designed specifically for supplementary school teachers to support their students with Higher Education information. The Teachers’ Toolkit provides teachers with up to date and clear information on the processes involved so that they are able to confidently support their students.

The Toolkit is comprised of 7 sessions that cover different topics surrounding Higher Education. Each session includes activities that cover a range of different learning styles which helps young people to learn in a fun and interactive way.

The Toolkit is designed to meet the needs of young people aged 13-18 and its main aim is to equip these students with the skills and information that they need to access Higher Education and to make informed choices about their educational pathways.

What resources are provided in the Teachers’ Toolkit?

For each session the following materials are provided:

A Facilitator Manual which includes:

- The Session Overview with timings- this gives you a breakdown of all of the activities in the session and how long they are meant to last. It also informs you of any advance preparation that’s needed and a list of all of the different resources for the session.

The Facilitator Session Script- a comprehensive guide of the entire session, which takes you through a word for word delivery of every activity. Teachers can use the script to get to grips with the session and then integrate their own style in the delivery if they so wish.
