Sessions and Workshops

The below gives an idea of the type of support available to students, but we aim to be flexible and meet the needs of our school and college partners. All sessions can be delivered on the University of Roehampton campus, at your location or virtually, but must be booked directly by a representative from a school or college.

All sessions can also be provided in a recorded format or presented live via webinar to school groups. The team are happy to discuss platform options and provide technical support.
