Cabot Learning Federation Y10 Conference Day
29 June 2017
The Cabot Learning Federation invited the School of Biochemistry to participate in their recent Y10 conference Day. Hosted at City Academy Bristol, approximately 125 Year 10 students took part in a number of practical workshops, along with the chance to talk about University life.
The project is the culmination of a four year partnership with the Schools University Partnership Initiative, funded by the RCUK (Research Council UK). The aim of which is to strengthen links between schools and universities and promote research. The School of Biochemistry was proud to be involved and looks forward to future events with the CLF.
“I think this day has been really exciting and beneficial: students who might not understand what university entails and might not think it is something they are able to access, have been able to experience it first-hand. Hopefully, they will be able to approach their current studies with an understanding of their next steps.” Helen Angell, Senior Network Leader for English, Cabot Learning Federation.
“For our researchers it is a great opportunity to meet the students of the future and inspire them. These events also help us demonstrate to students from a wide range of backgrounds that going to university is an option for them.” Ellie Cripps, Schools Liaison Officer, University of Bristol.
