Our trainees chose many interesting topics for their dissertations, including the academic and social development of children.

 For example, one project showed how praise and positive reinforcement can help pupils develop a positive attitude towards learning fractions.

Another project based on academic development showed how the outdoor environment can promote child literacy. A project with a social focus showed how role play can help children understand real world events, such as feeling empathy towards refugees.

Why Work with the University of Worcester?

Schoolchildren got a taste of life in Westminster during a special Parliament Day hosted by the University of Worcester.

Designed to coincide with UK Parliament Week, pupils from Pitmaston Primary School, in Worcester, got the chance to put politics into practice with a key debate on the use of modern technology.
