Hannah is a member of the senior team in Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity at UWE Bristol. She is Programme Manager for Future Quest, an Office for Students funded regional partnership of the national Uni Connect programme, which aims to increase the progression of young people into higher education from postcode areas where participation is lower than might be expected from GCSE grades.
Future Quest is a collaborative partnership of education providers, local authorities, local enterprise partnerships and third sector organisations led by UWE Bristol. The partnership runs a number of progression programmes in local schools, which deliver engaging and interactive activities designed to equip young people with:
- the knowledge of higher education and potential future pathways
- the understanding of skill requirements for study and future
- the ability to develop self-reflection and self-belief
Future Quest has also created an Outreach Hub which enables students, parents and carers and school staff to access progression information and opportunities on our website, as well as providing channels for these communities to voice their needs and to identify gaps in outreach activity which feed directly into strategic stakeholder groups.
