A School-University Partnership Initiative: The Sustainability Network Wales (SusNet) Project


 The project is funded by Research Councils UK

IBERS is the lead AU institute delivering this project and offers ‘A’ level students:

 Research-led short academic units to enhance and excite the A level curriculum in:

  • A blended learning approach‌ which includes face-to-face contact time (such as practical sessions) and on-line learning activities
  • A fun, informal and interactive learning environment
  • Funding to cover student travel and refreshments

U‌nits are taught at a convenient time for students and teachers (for example this year schools have requested some units are taught out of school hours).

Funding is also available to cover teacher supply costs and develop continuing professional development courses

If you are a school, college, student or interested parent and would like more information about the SusNet project then please contact Dr Paula Hughes pah15@aber.ac.uk.
