Future Quest

Led by UWE Bristol and funded by the Office for Students (OfS), Future Quest is all about encouraging young people to get into HE, where participation is lower than expected.

Through the National Collaborative Outreach Programme ( NCOP) , the Government aims to double the number of young people going into HE by 2020, increase the number of those from ethnic minority groups by 20%, and address the under-representation of young men.

SBL Academy with Future Quest will bring together HE providers, schools, colleges, employers and partners, to help meet those aims.

We have 54 students in Years 9-12 on the Future Quest Programme.
