School visits by our Students' Union
vTeam is a student-led volunteering team
here at Essex. Our students have a lot of fantastic ideas that they want to share with the world
and some of these ideas have been turned into some great projects that we offer to local schools.
How it works
A group of volunteers (usually up to eight) come to your school, once a week and deliver a programme of hour-long
sessions based around a subject or interest. You can offer these as an after school club or as part of a school day.
We have a very wide range of projects available and they can run for as many sessions as you need.
Best to run in Autumn Term. Our volunteers will teach your students about different plants, how to grow and look after
them and they will also focus on importance of balanced healthy eating.
Paint, make, create. Our projects are inventive and your students will never get bored. Themed lessons and lots of hands on activities!
We can teach your students how to code. Any level of knowledge is welcome; we have some very talented IT geeks!
Science with a bang. We offer a wide range of experiments and it's always fun for everyone.
Being one of the most international universities in the country, we have students from different parts of the world.
They are eager to come in and teach basics of their language and share their culture with you.
Our volunteers can teach your students about money, savings, banks and where money comes from.
1-2-1 tuition for your students by our students in a range of instruments.
Volunteers play maths-related games and explain basics of maths or push gifted and talented students to think more.
Paper sculptures with a bit of history! Suitable for different ages and abilities no glue or scissors allowed!
Our enthusiastic photographers teach students about different cameras, exposures and angles. Pimp your Instagram!
Our volunteers explain the importance of voting and differences between different political parties, coalitions and how to campaign.
Aimed at a younger audience - never ending tales and storytelling with props, some sessions are held outside, but all sessions are fun!
Basic rights from our law volunteers coupled with courtroom role plays and more!
Perfect for secondary schools with large classes. Volunteers with passion for teaching will come and assist you during the lesson
and help students who need support.
History with a twist. Facts vs fiction, vikings, vampires, wizards, explorers, pirates and many more!
