Aspire to HE
The Gateway at The George
The Office for Students (OfS) Uni Connect programme has launched its annual report this week and accredited Aspire to HE for its successful collaboration with Dudley College.
The report states:
Aspire to HE, led by the University of Wolverhampton, has collaborated with their local NCS provider and Dudley College to support the delivery of a specific NCS programme for target Uni Connect learners which was tailored to meet the needs of those who would benefit most from the experience.
A programme was developed between the college and the local NCS provider that supported the involvement of learners identified through Aspire to HE.
For many learners, the financial aspect of taking part in college activities can be a huge barrier to their participation and therefore their success.
Due to the college’s links with the local Uni Connect partnership, target learners were financially supported to take part in the programme which had a number of positive impacts and outcomes, supporting their progression and personal development.
