A number of our residents have attended online support sessions during which they received advice and guidance on how best to complete their university UCAS applications.
Following on from the initial sessions, they’ll now receive one-on-one support with writing their personal statements which is often the most challenging part of the application process.
“In most cases these students are the first in their family to consider university,” says Jack Lavery, Head of Economics and Business at a local Lewisham school who is leading on the initiative.
An additional online session is taking place in autumn to help attendees understand how student finance works. To find out more contact email@example.com.
