The students of south Bristol have a huge amount of potential; we want to help them to understand routes into apprenticeships, higher education and high-quality jobs by running programmes which draw together the city’s collective capacity to support young people.
Being a part of this programme has helped me bring way more confidence when speaking and listening. Thank you for choosing me, it has made a great difference to me, friends and family.
We are a consortium of seven schools, one community organisation and two universities.
We work through schools to respond to the specific needs of young people, parents/carers and schools in the area; from learning maths skills for life, to taking part in inspirational experiences.
We are also working on a time-limited programme involving 27 schools and four colleges across the city.
As well as delivering programmes, we work strategically across the city:
as an influencer to convene partnerships to tackle ward inequalities
to facilitate closer collaboration between schools in key wards
to create a bridge between schools, employers, funders, and FE and HE institutions
to help decision-makers understand the real barriers that young people in challenging circumstances face.
