IntoUniversity North Liverpool

IntoUniversity North Liverpool

IntoUniversity North Liverpool is a partnership project with the LFC Foundation, official charity of Liverpool Football Club, University of Liverpool and national educational charity, IntoUniversity.

What is the IntoUniversity North Liverpool project?

The project supports children and young people in North Liverpool from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach their educational potential by providing a dedicated learning centre, after-school clubs, homework support and mentoring schemes.

Each year, the North Liverpool centre provides over 1000 local young people with a programme of personal and educational support that includes;

  • Weekly after-school academic support
  • One-to-one mentoring
  • Provision of workshops to local primary and secondary schools that aim to nurture young people’s aspirations

Education statistics within the North Liverpool

In parts of North Liverpool where the centre operates, the higher education progression rate is as low as 17.5%, less than half the national average (37%).

In the Anfield ward, young employment (16-24) is currently at 8.5% compared to 2.8% nationally.

Careers in FOCUS

Careers in FOCUS events bring together year 9 secondary school children with adult professionals as a valuable and engaging introduction to the world of work.

Recently, LFC Foundation and Liverpool FC volunteers led hands-on workshops about their career pathway, offering students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the working world and gain knowledge of the skills and qualifications they need to pursue their ambitions.
 
During the session at Anfield, students were challenged to create a digital magazine, plan a fundraising event and were taken through a typical day in the life of an LFC Foundation Project Lead.
