#iwill: Student Volunteering Week 2016

1 impassioned student volunteer + 2 pupils lacking confidence in maths x 30 minutes per week playing games = fun with maths and improved employability for both volunteers and children.

With national Student Volunteering Week approaching, National Number Partners is delighted to launch our first two schemes with university student volunteers linking University of Wolverhampton with Loxdale Primary and at Queen Mary University with Stebon Primary near our Tower Hamlets EBP HQ in East London.

We’re building on the great work that our partners Leicestershire Cares do with Loughborough University and Ablaze Bristol do with UWE in order to engage more student volunteers nationally as Number Partners in their local primary schools.

We think students make great Number Partners, bringing their own passion and reflections on their subject choices and career choices to the table, thereby raising primary school pupils’ aspirations towards higher education and beyond.

#wewill build a world where all children have the confidence to say ‘I love maths!’
