LSME-Inspire Project aims to support younger students, year 10-13, in their areas of low attainment in Maths, English and Science with one-to-one support, mentoring and tuition. This support does not target the most gifted and talented but all students of a low socio-economic background who wish to progress to further and higher education regardless of their ability. LSME-Inspire project has two objectives – providing support to underachieving learners and enhancing opportunities to access higher education. We work with Secondary and Sixth Form schools and relevant organisations to identify and support the students under this category.
Realising there are existing gaps and barriers to access to Higher Education for young people who have fallen out of the education system and are not in employment or education or training (NEET), care-leavers, refugees, or asylum seekers, LSME, as part of its Access and Participation Plan, implements the ‘Not Too Late to Learn’ (NTLTL) project to address these barriers at a local level.
The NTLTL project is aimed at improving aspirations of young people in the NEET category, Care Leavers, Refugees, or Asylum Seekers and is aligned with the government’s strategy to reduce the number of young people in the NEET category.
The project aims to provide potential learners within the target population with academic support in a Foundation Year and support their progression to higher education.
Disability Outreach Project
LSME Disability Outreach Project aims at breaking the barriers that prevent people with disabilities from accessing higher education opportunities and providing each individual with the tools and support to continue their education as well as become more independent.
LSME offers personalised support to young people with not so severe disabilities and additional needs within a conducive learning environment. The project endeavors to raise the aspiration of people with special needs by removing barriers, providing individualised learning support, mentoring, and exposure to Higher Education.
