Targeting Schools and Students for Widening Participation Events

Wed 15 Jan 2020


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.

This will be a practical session, which will explore different methods of identifying schools and students who meet widening participation targeting criteria. This session will focus on using tools available to identify these students, and the datasets CAO has available for members of University staff wishing to run UK based widening participation events.

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.

Number of sessions: 1
