Through our Widening Access Projects we aim to have an influence on the development of the whole learner journey. By supporting a range of partners to develop and deliver interventions that remove barriers to participation and support transitions to Further and Higher Education we will build an evidence base of what works and what doesn’t in widening access to education.Through these projects we support activities that ensure that those who have the ability and potential to benefit from Further and Higher Education, irrespective of their background or economic circumstances can do so. Current projects:
Borders College Young Talent
First Chances Project
Forth Valley College Time 4 Me
Glasgow Kelvin College Transitions to Learning and Employment
SWAP East Widening Access to HE Mentoring Project
