Day-to-day I work with young people in Oxfordshire by delivering events in school and co-ordinating events away from school around how they can make the most of their future.

More about me:

Before joining Study Higher I previously worked at the Southern Universities Network, another NCOP, meaning I now have over two years' experience in HE widening participation and outreach. My first job after graduating was at my alma mater, Winstanley College in Wigan; I worked in the schools' liaison team to organise and deliver college recruitment events, and supported gifted and talented students to access outreach activities to bolster their Oxbridge and Russell Group applications. The assistance I had previously received from this college was fundamental to me securing my own place to study Experimental Psychology at Christ Church, Oxford, graduating in 2014.
