Staff support within the community
Several members of our staff have close relations with schools and colleges. One of our computing lecturers sits on the Board of a local IT Academy creating a seamless interface between the college and our University. Lecturers visit schools and colleges informing students and teachers of our wide range of courses and the various pathways into different careers. College students also visit the University, attending lectures and tutorials and experiencing University life.
14-19 Diploma support
UWE works closely with the Kingswood Partnership on a number of subjects. The latest collaboration is based around the IT Diploma where we are supporting level 2 students with their projects.
Student projects reach out to the community
Several of our students’ final year projects have involved finding solutions for industry or for local schools and colleges.
