About the programme
The Central Outreach and Widening Participation Team at Warwick offers a variety of activities for our 29 Partner Schools in Coventry and Warwickshire to support learners in their journey to access Higher Education (HE). We aim to demystify the academic world of university life as well as offer impartial information, advice and guidance (IAG) enabling learners to make informed decisions at key milestones in their school career. Our outreach offer has been tailored to help local schools/colleges support the progression of learners whose peers and family have limited knowledge or experience of HE.
