Progress to Success

University Experience Day “Informative, fun and inspiring. A great experience!”

The Progress to Success programme is designed to raise aspirations, improve attainment and increase awareness of higher education and alternative progression routes. We offer the programme from Year 7 through to Year 11 to ensure at each stage they receive a mixture of relevant and interactive activities and workshops. This is aimed to increase their awareness of higher education and support the young people through their decision process.

We aim to support all of the young people we engage with to ensure they are able to meet their full potential and make well informed decisions regarding their future.
