As we reflect on the achievements of the past year, we are thrilled to share the incredible impact of IntoUniversity at the Beacon Centre. Through our collaborative efforts and the generous support of our donors, we have made significant strides in empowering young people and transforming communities.
In the 2022/23 academic year, IntoUniversity Salford Central opened its doors to almost 1,000 students, providing them with structured academic support and invaluable resources. From tailored curriculum workshops for primary students to Future Readiness projects for secondary students, our programs have inspired a love for learning and equipped students with essential skills for success.
66% of Salford Central students have progressed into HE, compared to a local average of 20%, and we are delighted that 22 IU students, will join the University of Salford in 2024.
Parent feedback speaks volumes about the positive impact of our programs, with one parent expressing gratitude for the structured after-school sessions and exposure to a variety of topics. Through workshops, university visits, and hands-on projects, students have gained confidence, and developed a clearer understanding of their future educational pathways.
The dedication of our partner schools and the commitment of our passionate staff have been instrumental in driving positive outcomes for students. As highlighted by a headteacher at one of our partner primary schools, our programs have not only improved academic attainment but have also instilled a sense of aspiration and confidence in students.
However, challenges remain, particularly in light of the pandemic’s long-term effects on disadvantaged students. These challenges empower us to continue supporting young people from all backgrounds, ensuring that they have the opportunity to realize their full potential.
As we celebrate 20 years of IntoUniversity’s impact, we are deeply grateful for the support of our donors and we look forward to empowering even more futures in the years to come.
