The University of Manchester already boasts one of the UK’s most extensive programmes of work with local state schools and colleges – particularly those in more challenging circumstances – as part of its widening participation and social responsibility goals.  As a major part of the University’s new Access Agreement with the Office for Fair Access, we have committed to expanding the number of staff who can commit to support local schools as Governors and providing a network for such people to share experiences and act as positive ambassadors for the University.
