Outreach: schools and colleges

Outreach: Schools and Colleges

At Hartpury, we believe that everyone should be provided with the chance to experience university life so that they can understand exactly what is on offer in higher education. The main focus for the team in outreach is to ensure we inspire, motivate and empower young people. This will help them make the right decision to suit their individual ‘wants, needs and aspirations’ and ultimately reach their full potential.

We aim to provide a wide range of important initiatives such as subject taster days, student life talks, presentations, and subject masterclasses. We are an enthusiastic team supported by highly qualified lecturers who enjoy inspiring young minds both on campus and in schools. We work closely with schools, colleges, teachers and careers advisors to ensure individuals are provided with innovative activities designed to raise aspirations and enhance the awareness and benefits of higher education. We work hard to develop strong relationships for targeted outreach work to ensure all young people have opportunities regardless of their background.

The GROWs network

At Hartpury, we are very proud to be one of six partners in the GROWS Gloucestershire network where we work together to engage and support schools with outreach activities. They are part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) and The Gloucestershire Aspiration Programme (GAP) delivered by GROWS, has been put into place to support the educational goals of the government.

The GROWS network helps students aged 11 - 18 to achieve their potential and to raise awareness of the different routes (academic, vocational and work based) into Higher Education (HE). The network aims to enable students to become both motivated and confident about their learning and progression as well as how to make informed decisions about their future.

All future events held on University campuses and activities provided in schools can be found on the GROWs website.
