First things first

Introductions 

Someone from your school registers an expression of interest, or contacts us for more information. We will then arrange a phone conversation with a member of our team to make sure you are fully aware of what the programme involves.

Recruiting your students

Following this, a member of your school’s staff will need to  recruit around 10 AS/A-level students who wish to participate. Typically this is done by telling students about the programme and circulating our promotional materials. A vetting method may be required to select students depending on how many express interest – we normally limit the number of school students to between 10 – 12. We welcome students with various academic interests, those aspiring to study a science degree, medicine or philosophy at university will be particularly well-suited.

Planning your workshop schedule

Once a partnership has been agreed and your students have been recruited, UCL student volunteers will be assigned to your school who will lead the programme. Through regular correspondence, your volunteers will negotiate and organise a weekly workshop schedule with your school, after EBM+ have facilitated initial correspondence.

This whole process will occur throughout November and finalise in December, ahead of the programme’s launch in schools at the beginning of the spring term in January.
