Teaching outside the box
Our Subject in a Box initiative is a ground-breaking project designed to engage with hard to reach students ages 14-15 years, whilst supporting the GCSE curriculum.
Subject in a Box is an imaginative, innovative way of supporting schools, engaging with hard to reach students and pragmatically supporting the GCSE curriculum (Year 10 pupils) that’s accessible, easy to use, fun and sustainable.
Each box has had input from one of our University academics and enables teachers of year 10 students to provide their class with a unique insight into degree-level study whilst providing an engaging, interactive lesson, suitable for their current level of learning.
Schools choose the subject(s) they are interested in and order the boxes online, completely free of charge. Schools are sent a box which comes complete with a lesson plan, presentation, worksheets and the equipment required to deliver the lesson.
Since its launch in January 2017, the programme has reached 4,052 children, across 52 schools and colleges.
