We’re supporting local people to access life-changing opportunities through raising aspirations, education and helping local people in our region into employment.

Supporting local students

We support the whole student lifecycle, from sowing the seeds about university in primary schools to enhancing progression for underrepresented groups to postgraduate study. We have a strong focus on our region through our programmes, with the aim of supporting learners from the local community to progress onto higher education.

Our Experience Warwick Partnership programme offers a variety of in-school and on-campus activities for local state schools in Coventry and Warwickshire aiming to inspire and inform local young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to progress to Higher Education

In 2020/21 we worked with over 600 school children in 27 primary schools in Coventry and Warwickshire through our Warwick Bright Stars programme.

Think Higher Coventry & Warwickshire

We are leading Think Higher Coventry & Warwickshire, the Office for Students (OfS) funded Uni Connect network in partnership with Coventry University, Warwickshire County Council and local Further Education colleges. The network aims to help streamline Higher Education outreach for local schools, as well as exploring new ways of delivering outreach to meet local needs and priorities. Through this programme, we play an important collaborative role in supporting young people in schools and colleges in Rugby, Nuneaton and Bedworth and North Warwickshire areas.
