Thank you to all who donated to IntoUniversity at our THE Leadership and Management Awards 2013 with your generous donations we raised over £8000.
The vision of IntoUniversity is to provide a national network of high quality, local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve. Working with schools and universities, IntoUniversity centres offer an innovative programme that supports children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration.
At each centre we provide 7-18 year olds with a combination of
- after-school academic support
- undergraduate mentors
- specially-designed study weeks (FOCUS weeks)
We believe that we must start working with children in the primary years if we are to have a decisive impact upon their futures. We continue to give academic and pastoral support right through to university application.
In 2012, 77.1% of IntoUniversity school leavers had secured a university place, with a further 7.1% in the process of applying for 2013.
There are now 12 IntoUniversity centres in London, Nottingham and Bristol with at least 8 more planned in other major cities by 2016.
