Teacher’s Guide

The Teachers’ Guide has been produced by UniTasterDays.com in collaboration with HELOA, to support the university guidance that is provided in secondary schools and colleges. 

This editorial has been provided by over 60 colleagues, including universities throughout the UK – and of course the University of Leicester. It is on topics covering how to support students with their university decisions, university events, widening participation and fair access, UCAS applications (including writing school references) and many more.
