Our Summer School programmes are delivered for 16-17 year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to encourage them to progress to higher education. They are high profile events funded by the Sutton Trust and David Ross Foundation, and they are central to the work we do in Widening Participation.
Participants on our programme often face barriers to accessing online learning and if taking part in a residential programme, are usually away from home for the first time and don’t know anyone else on the programme.. This makes them particularly vulnerable, and we hire a team of Summer School Ambassadors to both supervise and mentor the young people through both an online and residential experience. We have high expectations of our Ambassadors as they have such a crucial role to fill on the programme, as well as a great deal of responsibility..
