Encouraging and enabling more young people to access higher education and to take up professional work opportunities.This innovative programme inspires young people and helps raise aspirations, by exposing students to senior industry professionals, relatable recent graduates, and university lecturers across a range of careers and industries. All sessions are highly interactive, allowing young people to ask practical questions and explore the reality of life in different careers.
