Partnerships and Pledges
At Liverpool we recognise that learners have individual needs and some may need different levels of support in progressing to higher education. That's why we work with various targeted groups, including young people from a care background, disabled students, young adult carers, estranged students, asylum seeking and refugee students and students from ethnic minority backgrounds.
We work in partnership with a number of organisations and Projects to extend our reach to these learners, including: INTOUniversity North Liverpool, the Liverpool City Council's Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service the National Network for the Education of Care Leavers, Shaping Futures (NCOP), the Social Mobility Foundation, the Tutor Trust and Local Authorities.
The University has also committed its support to improving social mobility by signing up to a number of covenants and pledges, including: the Care Leavers Covenant, the Stand Alone Pledge, the joint UUK / NUS BAME Attainment Pledge, the Service Children's Progression Alliance North West Hub, Unlock and UUP Fair Chance for Students with Convictions Pledge, and the United Nations Refugee Forum Pledge.
