Working with schools

The University of Worcester has a strong reputation for supporting a range of sports within the region and for working with young people.  

We offer a range of services for teachers and careers advisers, aimed at supporting you and your students through every stage of the transition from school to university.  

We organise activities for students and teachers visiting the University and also take activities out into schools and colleges. At a variety of levels, we give insights into current research, explain degree and career options and generally enthuse the next generation to enjoy sport, both on the pitch and in the class room.  

Learning Through Sport

The Institute already has many links with schools and colleges, and runs an annual Learning Through Sport event in collaboration with some of Worcestershire’s leading sports clubs and businesses.

The University is very committed to developing participation in sport in our region and to working with young people.

Learning Through Sport aims to promote children’s participation in sport as well as encouraging learning. The programme has been widely acclaimed and expands each year to involve more children in worthwhile activity. We are continually working with a wide range of sports to develop opportunities for participants of all ages.  

University of Worcester Vice Chancellor, Professor David Green, said: “Participating in sport has very many positive virtues. In recent years the University and our partners have developed internationally recognised expertise in promoting education through sport. Several thousand children in our region have already benefited.”
