Widening Participation Statement

Some learners who wish to progress to Higher Education (HE) face a number of barriers and obstacles. For example, if you come from a lower socio-economic background you are less likely to study at a HE level than your more affluent peers. In addition, if you are disabled, a mature learner returning to study with non-traditional entry qualifications, come from a Black or Minority Ethnic (BME) background or you have grown up in care then you are less likely to study at HE level. Other barriers to HE include being the first in the family to consider HE, finding the cost of study prohibitively expensive or taking vocational qualifications.

Our priorities are:

  • Raise awareness and expectations of the Higher Education offer in the local community
  • Mature students returning to education with non-traditional entry qualifications
  • Students from BME
  • Students from deprived postcode areas
  • Increase retention of vulnerable students on programmes
