What to expect from a school

When you chat with your contact

Let your contact at the school know what you need in order to run a Design Club. If you like, print out our school meeting notes (one page) to help structure the conversation .

What you'll need to discuss

  • The year group
  • The number of children in the club
  • A day and time the club will run
  • Start and end date for the club
  • Assistant support (either a teacher, teaching assistant or suitable parent)
  • Equipment (projector, ideally WiFi, and access to a printer)
  • Whether or not you can bring in guest support (if applicable, check the process)
  • Main point of contact at school
  • Enhanced DBS check (mention if you have one, need one, or are getting one)
  • Promoting the club (check when and how this happens)
Don't forget to ask your contact what the school expects of you, too.
