Widening Participation and Outreach programs have a positive effect on students’ readiness to face the academic challenges they are likely to encounter in high school and university.

Students say they feel better prepared for university after participating in our programs. Parents and carers also report having a better capacity to support their child with higher education goals.

Evidence suggests that our programs are changing student attitudes towards learning, with students reporting they have developed better study skills, while participating teachers say that involvement has helped them expand their teaching practices.
