Experience Warwick Partnership


About the Experience Warwick Partnership

The Experience Warwick Partnership 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. The partnership provides information, advice and guidance, in addition to exciting opportunities to enable learners to make informed decisions at key milestones throughout their educational journey. Our activities are tailored to understand the needs of local schools and support the progression of learners whose peers and family have limited knowledge or experience of HE.

The Experience Warwick Partnership is currently being reviewed for 2020/21, given the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, but more information is included in the drop-down boxes about how the partnership has previously run. If you have any questions please contact
