Hello from the Education Support Unit at the University of Greenwich
The Education Support Unit co-ordinates the University's work with schools and colleges and is a team with extensive and varied experience in the education sector, including qualified teachers and careers advisers, outreach officers, recent graduates and student ambassadors. We work closely with schools, colleges, and education partners across London and the South East to support academic attainment and progression to higher education.
We offer a wide range of activities designed to give students a chance to experience university life.
GREat Skills is an initiative designed to develop academic skills and help students prepare for the transition to University. GREat Skills is a programme of academic and personal skills workshops delivered by our trained student ambassadors and staff, aimed at students from local sixth forms and colleges across London, Kent, Essex, Sussex and Surrey.
