Teachers' Toolkit

De Montfort University’s (DMU) award winning toolkit has been designed to help teachers and careers advisors in providing up to date, reliable and engaging IAG to their students on the sometimes daunting and often complicated university application processes. It details the full range of topics to be covered with each chapter containing readymade information and activity sheets and customisable powerpoint presentations where appropriate.

Chapters and individual elements can be downloaded in complete form as a ready to go set or separately to complement existing school provision.

Annual updates to the generic IAG chapters, will be launched electronically* each September for addition to your files, sooner if significant and prompt changes are required, however subject specific chapters are expected to be launched in hard and electronic copy each spring. These chapters focus on new and exciting subjects or high demand and complicated areas with significant challenges in application and gaining successful entry.
