Education Studies students at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) have been working alongside PhD students from the University of Lincoln to help prepare local school pupils for Higher Education and build their research skills.
The ‘Research Higher’ Project, coordinated by the cross-county LiNCHigher programme, is designed to develop research skills in Year 12 pupils and provide them with additional experience that will benefit them if they choose to go onto Higher Education. Over the course of the workshops held throughout the school term the pupils have been carrying out research into perspectives on Higher Education with BGU students supporting their learning as research mentors.
Dr Helen Hendry, Programme Leader for Education Studies at BGU, discussed why the Education team were keen to be part of the project:
“It has been really exciting to work on this first time project that has provided both our students and local school pupils with some fantastic opportunities.
“The year 12 pupils, who were an absolutely fantastic and engaging group, gain a research qualification for completing the project along with a window into what life at university could be like. Our students meanwhile have been able to gain unique hands on experience and build up transferable skills as educational mentors that they will be able to use to support learners of all ages”
If your child is interested in getting involved in the Research Higher project, email LHERI@lincoln.ac.uk or call 01522 88 2000. More information can also be found on the Lincoln Higher Education Research Institute website.
The Education courses at BGU boast fantastic connections with a wide range of educational establishments across Lincolnshire meaning they’re able to offer amazing opportunities for hands on experience and placements.
