WP Outreach Participant Targeting/Selection Skills Session


Cambridge Admissions Office has organised a series of briefing sessions in the coming weeks aimed at Schools Liaison Officers, Faculty/Department Outreach Staff, and any academics and staff members who will communicate with potential students.

Aimed at outreach practitioners with less experience using targeting/selection on their outreach programmes, this skills-based session will provide examples of good practice implementing targeting/selection drawn from experience running CAO programmes. The session will also explore ways to use other data sources and HEAT to make the process easier.

This session follows on from a briefing delivered in March explaining the new targeting/selection criteria adopted by the Collegiate University.

Target audience
  • College SLOs/Admissions Staff
  • Faculty/Department staff with outreach, widening participation, recruitment or admissions roles
  • University staff who are interested in running public engagement events or activities with a pre-undergraduate audience.
  • Improve targeting and selection methods for recruitment events and widening participation activity across the University
  • Improve knowledge and awareness of tools and datasets available for members of University staff to use to target schools and students.

Presentation with worked examples


1 hour briefing and up to 30 minutes Q&A
