The best teacher feedback I have seen in my career.

Workshops that will inspire teachers to make lasting change in university progression.

Causeway Education has been leading the way in helping teachers support students to make better choices about their university education since 2013.

We believe that, with the right preparation, teachers themselves are able to provide the best solution to targeting and supporting all students, including those from under-represented groups, the more able and those applying for competitive courses.

We can help teachers build institutional knowledge, based on detailed research, data and evidence, so they can make sense of the seemingly complex higher education landscape and confidently move students to their best destinations.

We have approached the whole UCAS process differently.

How it works

We have a selection of workshops that can be mixed and matched to create a full or half day event.

I just wanted you all to see an extract from our Ofsted inspection which happened before half term:

In addition, staff have worked hard, and with success, to raise aspirations for students to access higher education. Consequently, the proportion of students who hold offers for places, including at Russell Group universities, has increased.

We have as a school risen from Requiring Improvement to a Good, such a relief and thank you for all your help and support in helping us to increase aspiration.
