The University of Warwick has teamed up with national educational charity IntoUniversity to launch a new project aimed at raising aspirations and improving educational outcomes for children and young people in Coventry.
The IntoUniversity Coventry centre, based in the Hillfields area of the city, will be run by national education charity IntoUniversity in partnership with the University.
Building on existing outreach programmes the centre will work with up to 1,000 children and young people each year, to help them make the best of their talents and improve their chances of gaining a university place.
The Coventry centre, based in the St Peter’s Centre on Charles Street, is already working with three primary schools, two secondary schools and a Sixth Form college in the area. Over one hundred students have signed up to receive after-school support, access to university-student mentors, workshops and insight into university life.
