Outreach

Outreach Banner
Just as Computer Science provides a world of possibility, studying at University can transform the way a person perceives the world and the opportunities available to them. Our aim in outreach is to raise the aspirations of young people for higher education and to help pupils make informed choices.
We have a variety of ongoing projects and activities designed to engage with the wider community, many of which have a particular emphasis on working with schools.

We are proud to work with schools, professional bodies, government and academic institutions in raising the profile of Computer Science. Almost all of our projects involve partnerships of some sort. For example, Play Code Share is a project involving Warwick Arts Centre and local digital artist Ashley Brown. We have recently signed up to deliver a 3-year programme of events and activities in partnership with Isaac Computer Science, a free online platform for students and teachers. We also regularly host training events for Teachers as part of the National Centre for Computing.

We are passionate about encouraging access to higher education, and Computer Science as a discipline, for all those who have the potential to study at university, regardless of background and we work closely with the Widening Participation and Outreach Team at Warwick.
