Teachers: what you can expect from ‘Seren 2017: Above and Beyond’


  1. Step away from the classroom and learn more about supporting your high-performing students
    It’s not often teachers get a chance to step out of the classroom to spend time on their own professional development. Above and Beyond will give you a chance to enhance your own skills, support your brightest pupils, and ask any questions you may have about university applications.
  2. Prepare pupils for Oxbridge interviews
    Do you have any questions relating to Oxford or Cambridge interviews? A dedicated preparation session will equip you with the know-how to help your students navigate the interview process. Alongside this, you can also take part in a presentation about the subject-specific admissions tests used for subjects such as Medicine or Law.
  3. Meet other teachers across Wales who are also going above and beyond to support their brightest pupils
    Listen to – and share best practice with – other teachers who are all supporting their most talented pupils. Some of the best insights can come from chance conversations with like-minded practitioners, so seize the opportunity to meet others who are going above and beyond to support their pupils.
  4. Learn how you can plan ‘stretch and challenge’ support for pupils alongside A-levels
    Take part in a practical planning workshop aimed at helping you design and implement support packages that run alongside A-level study to give pupils the best chance of being university-ready. External organisations will also be on hand to help teachers enrich their students’ experiences.

The Seren Network annual conference in Newtown is aimed at both students and teachers. You can sign-up here, and a full session overview is available here.
