Recruitment and Outreach


11-16 Recruitment and Outreach

Delivered under the UP for Uni banner, the 11-16 Team work primarily with schools in the Portsmouth, Hampshire and Isle of Wight area. We also produce publications, run workshops during school holidays and produce and manage the website

All of our widening participation work is targeted at institutions where progression to higher education is low, deprivation is high or where there are significant proportions of under-represented groups continuing to further or higher education.

Recruitment and Outreach staff all undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.


We offer a wide range of activities and resources developed to inform and inspire young people aged 11-16 about higher education including its benefits and opportunities.

We aim to meet the needs of our local young people, their teachers and parents through a variety of on and off campus workshops and presentations.

Free resources

We provide free resources for secondary schools including a guide to progression routes. 

Teachers and Advisers

Throughout the year we run a number of events specifically for teachers and advisers.

My children thoroughly enjoyed all the activities that they attended with the Uni this summer. A huge thank you from all of us to you and your wonderful team.
