UEA Outreach Partnership

We are pleased to announce that as part of our partnership with the University of East Anglia (UEA), we will be having a 'Futures Advocate' in school every Wednesday from next half-term. Our Futures Advocate will be working with students across each year group, delivering advice around access to higher education, student life, student finance and revision.

In addition to this, we are working with UEAs' Outreach team to provide a number of exciting trips, events and workshops for students throughout the academic year, including the following:

Street Law: 'Street Law' is a project run by undergraduate students of the UEAs' Law school. It is designed to teach young people about their rights and responsibilities under the law and illustrate how the legal process works.

Headucate: ‘Headucate’ is a student run mental health society based at the Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia. Their main aim is to raise awareness of mental health in secondary schools; running small workshops to tackle common misconceptions about mental health issues and to tackle associated stigma.

Sexpression: 'Sexpression UK' is an independent network of student projects based at UK universities, who believe in empowering young people to make informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health through education. Discussions can cover relationships, decision-making and consent, STI and contraception, sexuality and concepts in LGBT+, puberty, body-image and self-esteem.
