Widening Access in Schools

Widening Access Centre

The Widening Access Centre is of the firm belief that we need to reach children at a young age in order to raise aspirations and open doors of opportunities to progress to higher and further education. Therefore, many of the Centre’s projects and partnerships involve children in years 5-9 (together with their parents) in order to capture the enthusiasm this age group have for learning everything new. We do this in partnership with the following:

  • Primary and secondary schools in the region
  • BusinessLab and the Family Learning Signature
  • Gr┼Áp Llandrillo Menai
  • GwE
  • County Councils and Education Departments
  • Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol
  • Reaching Wider

Student Recruitment Unit

On reaching year 9, the University’s Student Liaison Officers from the Student Recruitment Unit are crucial in fostering links between secondary schools and the University. Officers are often the first point of contact for school pupils and are regular visitors to pupils in from year 9 onwards. Through visits, targeted activities and University visits pupils are introduced to what the University has to offer.
