Tuesday February 6 2024 Raise the Bar Conference UWE Frenchay Campus
The College of Health, Science and Society at UWE has announced the launch of next year’s Raise the Bar conference at UWE. This event is aimed at students who are interested in higher education and who are currently unsure of their future options. It will enable students to explore pathways that will fulfil their aspirations, whilst also finding out what UWE has to offer. This event is aimed at students in Years 11-13. There is a focus on bridging the gap between black and minoritised students and white British students in higher education.
The day will comprise two halves. Students will take part in specialised workshops where the focus will be to connect with different cultures whilst mapping out aspirations of their own. This will include taster sessions from a range of departments. In the second half, they will be given a tour of what the UWE campus offers students. The conference is fully booked for students but staff from BEP schools that have not yet signed up are welcome to attend. If you are interested in registering follow this link. There is no charge to attend.
ROWING – Helping to make rowing a sport for everyone
British Rowing is investing in new structures and support to help the sport grow and thrive. They want to encourage more young people to be involved regardless of age, background or ability.

British Rowing is now searching for schools, colleges, universities and youth clubs interested in accessing the sport. They have funding available, access to teacher training and delivery resources, indoor rowing equipment and club links allowing schools the opportunity to introduce rowing in a way that fits in with your setting.
