Outreach & Widening Participation is an outreach initiative aimed at providing fair access to educational information and resources. Our mission is to inform and develop peoples understanding of Higher Education and its benefits.
We hope to foster a sense of community between fellow education providers and community groups in order to sustain continued growth in the number of people progressing onto undergraduate courses in Bristol and the South West. With this in mind, we have developed an eclectic mix of activities that aim to give those who participate not only a taster of studying at a higher level, but an opportunity to ignite aspiration and heighten ambition.
Uni Connect Programme
Future Quest is a collective partnership of Universities and Colleges based in Bristol, working together with the local authorities, the combined authority, employers and other organisations to develop and deliver the Office for Students funded Uni Connect Programme, supporting young people’s progression into higher education. Future Quest delivers a targeted higher education outreach programme to schools with students in identified postcode areas, where higher education progression is lower than might be predicted from GCSE results
