Universities, charities and others are moving provision online to support disadvantaged students to succeed and progress in the way they have capability to do. Although the online provision to support students is available, the students who could benefit most are unable to access it. We have a responsibility to not only provide the content that gives young people the best chance of success but we also need to provide the means for students to access it.
At Bath, we have been proactively providing digital outreach activities and have delivered digital outreach programmes since before the COVID-19 crisis. This experience has allowed us to quickly to become one of the sector leaders in delivering digital outreach, moving our On Track to Bath and Discover Bath programmes online, as well other initiatives such as building a resource hub.
