WP Outreach Participant Targeting/Selection Criteria Briefing

Fri 20 Mar 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.

Aimed at all outreach practitioners at the University of Cambridge, this briefing will provide an overview of the recently revised WP Participant Targeting/Selection criteria for use on outreach initiatives. The authors of the paper will explain the rationale behind the paper's revised weighting of WP measures and some of the research underpinning the paper. There will also be some discussion on why targeting/selection is important as opposed to using first come/first serve or relying exclusively on teacher nominations.

This session is accompanied by a skills-based session in April aimed at those with less experience implementing targeting/selection criteria.

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
