IntoUniversity North Liverpool supported by the LFC Foundation and University of Liverpool
The IntoUniversity North Liverpool centre in Anfield is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool, the LFC Foundation and education charity IntoUniversity. The centre will provide 1000 local young people each year with a programme of personal and educational support which will enable them to succeed at school and beyond. With the support of the LFC Foundation, and inspired by engagement with a leading Premier League football club, young people will be motivated to overcome barriers to their future success. Through visits to the University of Liverpool, mentoring from university volunteers and specialist input from university academics, young people will have exceptional opportunities to focus and develop their knowledge and ambitions. The centre, which is based at Anfield Business Centre, will provide weekly after-school academic support during term time, one-to-one mentoring and will work with local primary and secondary schools to provide programmes that nurture young people’s aspirations. The centre’s work is distinctive because IntoUniversity starts working with children as young as seven, supporting them over the long term in order to achieve a university place or another chosen aspiration.
