The Education Society (EdSoc) is open to all students of the University of Plymouth, especially for those studying an education degree or considering a career in the education sector. We aim to provide students with activities and opportunities that they may not get from their degree. Also creating multiple events to meet others in our great community both on campus and off campus.
We offer exciting activities including…
- Drinking and non-drinking socials
- Fundraising evenings for our two charities, Jeremiah’s Journey and Mind.
- A friendly support network for placement, assignments and general wellbeing throughout the year.
- Opportunities to upskill in many areas such as Makaton, First Aid and much more.
- Volunteering opportunities within the local area of Plymouth.
Our aim is work together to create exciting events where you can learn skills on your journey to working within the education sector. We hope to provide you with skills by offering information and discounts for education courses such as Makaton and First Aid. We are an incredibly flexible society that respond to the wants and needs of our members. We are developing the Education Society for 20/21 based on feedback from the members of last year.
Each term we hold both themed nights out and sober socials. These events are great for networking, socialising and making new friends not only across different specialisms and education degrees but degrees throughout the University. Our first social of the year will be a white t-shirt social, with prizes for whomever can get the most names written on their t-shirt! We will also be holding other themed nights out such as Hawaiian, festival, back to school and Pj party! As well as quizzes and pizza nights! Hope to see you all in September!
EdSoc sport is a great way to unwind, meet new people and be active. Over the past couple of years, the society has been fortunate enough to run football for members and last year, the first year of EdSoc Netball. This upcoming year, we hope to expand the amount of sport available so that more members can benefit. EdSoc recognises the importance of sport on mental health and therefore, we want to provide sporting opportunities for members so that they can have fun, learn new skills and play socially or competitively in the intramural leagues. As well as the teams, there are opportunities throughout the year to take part in tournaments; last year this included UV Volleyball and Netball, which EdSoc won! As a friendly society, we want to emphasise that no matter your ability or sport knowledge, we welcome everybody and are always here to support you. We hope to see you soon!
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.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
