Supporting our commitment to widening participation and local communities, our outreach team works to raise young people’s awareness of higher education, and the choices open to them.
From primary to secondary schools, our interactive activities and events enable pupils who may not have considered going to university to see it as an achievable option. Our activities also support schools in meeting the Gatsby 7 benchmark.
Our team offers interactive, inclusive activities for all pupils at partner schools from years 6 to 11, as well as for their parents and carers, encouraging participation from groups under-represented at university.
What we do: Widening Participation, primary and secondary activities, advice for parents.
Key Stage 3 resources: assemblies, virtual tours and Raising Aspirations.
Key Stage 4 resources: assemblies, virtual tours, study skills and apprenticeships.
Subject choices: student stories and course videos.
We have a comprehensive programme of online events and activities for 2020–21 delivered by our team of outreach practitioners, academic staff and student ambassadors. At present, we are busy planning an exciting programme for September, which, following the government's advice, should include face-to-face delivery in schools and colleges alongside online activities to support these events.
