The Education Society (EdSoc) is open to ALL students at the University of Plymouth, especially for those studying an education degree or considering a career in the education sector. Over the course of this year we will have many great opportunities for our members to meet new people and spend time with your friends as well as a chance to upskill in many areas such as Makaton and First Aid. As well as this, we support two charities (Mind and Jeremiah's Journey) which we will be fundraising for over the course of the year! Last year we raised over £300 for our charites during covid, so lets try and smash this number and raise as much as we can in 2021/22!!

Our aim is work together to create exciting events where you can learn skills on your journey to working within the education sector. We are a friendly society that is run by a committee that wants to have feedback and cater for its members! If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask, just drop us a message through our social media or email. 


The EdSoc isn’t just about the serious teaching side of university, socials are a large part of the club too! Throughout the year we aim to hold many socials including wellbeing meet ups, Hawaiian themed nights, cops and robbers and many many more. Our first social of the year will be 'First Day at School' theme to link with our course, with a competition to see who can have the best costume! The prizes will be determined through a vote which we will complete on the night.


EdSoc sport is a great way to unwind, meet new people and be active. The last academic year was not so positive for EdSoc sport due to Covid-19, but we hope to regain the spirit for our football and netball teams and to return with full force this academic year! If you would like to know a bit more about EdSoc sport, come to our ‘give it a go’ sessions which will be held at the start of term – (dates to be confirmed).


Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
