WP opportunities for LSE students

Please note we are aware of an issue LSE students are encountering when trying to create an account in order to make an application. When creating an account you may find you are taken to a ‘forgot password page’ rather than a ‘create password page’. The issue is a result of your email being based in Outlook 365. To prevent this from happening you will need to disable Outlook’s ‘preview links’ function before you try to log in.

In order to do this please follow these steps:

  1. Open Outlook
  2. Select the gear icon at top right of screen
  3. In the search box type “Message options”
  4. Click on “Message Options” when it appears in the results
  5. On the left hand side of the screen, in the "Layout" section, select "Link preview"
  6. Uncheck the "Preview links in email" checkbox
  7. Click “Save”
  8. Go back and Sign Up again 

If you continue to experience issues please contact widening.participation@lse.ac.uk

Opportunities for LSE students

Want to make a difference to the lives of young people in London? LSE’s Widening Participation team needs you!

What opportunities are available?

Our projects require enthusiastic and committed LSE students to be inspiring role models and help contribute to the success of our programmes. There are a range of paid and voluntary opportunities available.

Student Ambassadors:

A flexible, varied programme open to first and second year Undergraduate students. Work opportunities include representing LSE at fairs, giving campus tours and leading young people through classroom-based activities. A regular commitment is expected. 

Online applications are now open and will close on Wednesday 27th September 2017.

LSE Tutoring Scheme:

A regular voluntary commitment of half a day a week for 10 weeks from January- March in a London state school or college. You will lead either 1:1 or small group tutoring sessions in a specific subject, helping students to raise their attainment and think about what they might do when they leave school or college. You are not required to have previous experience of working with young people.

Online applications are now open and will close on Sunday 8th October 2017.

LSE Mentoring Scheme:

A regular commitment of half a day for 10 weeks from January-March working with 13-17 year olds. You will lead either 1:1 or group mentoring sessions which will help pupils to think about their next steps and their personal, social and academic development. Previous experience working with young people is essential.

Online applications are now open and will close on Sunday 8th October 2017.

Pathways to Law Mentoring:

An opportunity for LSE Law students to take part in face to face and e-mentoring through our two-year Pathways to Law programme.

Why should I get involved?

There are many benefits to giving up your time to work with young people. Here are just a few…

• Improve your transferable skills such as time management, communication and problem solving

• Strengthen your CV/resume and gain experience of working with young people

• Gain personal satisfaction by helping young people consider their Higher Education options

• Gain bespoke training including Child Protection, the UK education system, and how to be effective in your role.

• Commitment is flexible; mentoring and tutoring is only half a day per week in the Spring term. Law mentors engage with mentees at least twice a month during term time. Student Ambassadors can work on an ad hoc basis, although a regular commitment is expected.

• Participation will be recorded on your LSE Personal Development Aide Memoire (PDAM).
