We are passionate about economics and want to share our love of the subject with school children, to help them understand the subject better and encourage them to consider studying economics at university. We know that not all schools are able to offer support to their students and we want to help fill the gaps.
We aim to inspire school children about economics through our Widening Participation and Outreach work, including our Summer Challenge programme, UCL-Sutton Trust Economics Seminar School, our 2019 Discover Economics workshops and our recent workshops run by our students for local schools. Alongside, we work closely with our student Economist’s Society to develop mentoring links between student in higher education and schools. We also advise HM Treasury on financial literacy education for young people.
In addition, our team are available to provide workshops to schoolteachers to help them develop different approaches to teaching economics-related topics, in economics, maths, statistics or geography lessons for example. We can also help teachers provide advice to students on economics study at university.
If your school would be interested in knowing more about this support, please get in touch and we would be delighted to discuss with you.
