Our outreach programme

We provide outreach support and activities for teachers and trainers, parents and carers, and community groups to raise awareness, aspirations and achievement so that groups that are otherwise under-represented can successfully progress to Higher Education.

Our team works with people and communities under-represented in Higher Education including:

  • care leavers
  • disabled learners
  • first person in their family to attend university (first generation scholars)
  • low socio-economic or disadvantaged background
  • mature or returning learners
  • minority ethnic learners
  • young carers
  • students from low higher education participation neighbourhoods

Our support for learners Includes:

  • advice services
  • bespoke schemes
  • campus visits
  • mentoring
  • networking events
  • online resources
  • open days and higher education fairs
  • parent workshops
  • parents' evenings
  • presentations
  • student shadowing
  • summer schools
  • taster classes
  • teacher training days
