We believe that all students, no matter what their background, should have the opportunity to study at a prestigious university like Leeds and that all local pupils should be aiming to get into the very best university that they can.
The Business School employs a Widening Participation Officer whose primary aim is to build strong links with local schools and colleges and to work alongside academics to deliver a wide ranging programme of both aspiration raising and curriculum enhancing activities.
Activities the Business school has provided includes taster days, campus tours, parent information days, admissions talks, speakers into schools and a Summer School scheme. We also provide mentoring to local schools as well as working with Reach for Excellence and Gifted and Talented pupils.
We are always happy to receive requests for events from schools and Further Education institutions.
