Teachers and school advisers from Northamptonshire and surrounding counties met today for a conference designed to help them support their students.
Now in its sixth year, the conference focused on using University of Northampton work and initiatives that have helped the University be more ‘super supportive’ to their students before, during and after their studies, as well as examples from across Higher Education in general.
John Sinclair, Dean of the Faculty of Art, Science and Technology opened the day, giving an overview of the University of Northampton’s history and ethos.
Workshops included how students can write a good university application and how schools could better support their students as they prepare for the move into higher education.
Delegates also had the chance to get a bird’s eye view of the University’s new Waterside campus, due to open in September, by visiting the Senate Building the first completed academic building on the site.
