Linchigher-press-release-imageThe LiNCHigher team will be travelling across the length and breadth of the county this July, making stops at schools and community locations, in an unmissable double decker bus.

The team are expecting to meet at least 1,000 young people and their influencers on their nine day tour and will be offering exciting activities, workshops and the opportunity to ask questions about further and higher education options.

In Lincolnshire, young people are less likely to go into higher education than in other areas of the country despite similar GCSE results. LiNCHigher works across Lincolnshire as part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), funded by the Office for Students (OfS), to change this. It brings together Bishop Grosseteste University and the University of Lincoln with 45 schools, colleges and other local organisations to give inspiration, increase aspiration and support young people in years 9-13 to plan their future education.

The LiNCHigher bus will give these young people an opportunity to participate in social media and cyber safety workshops, produce a podcast and explore their dreams and aspirations to help them make decisions about future courses and jobs.

Naomi Prendergast, LiNCHigher Project Manager, said, “Our team is passionate about helping young people to realise their aspirations and our area engagement officers work in schools throughout the year.

The last week of term is a great time to offer fun activities and leave young people with positive messages to take away for the summer.

We’re also really looking forward to meeting everyone at our weekend stops too. Lincolnshire is a large county so we wanted to make it easy for young people and their families by bringing the bus to them. Pop in for a chat, have a go at the activities and pick up a goody bag!”

LiNCHigher will be running a competition during the bus tour and will be offering the chance every day to win a VIP trip to a UK university or further education of their choice*. Entrants will need to spot and take a photo of the LiNCHigher bus and share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #spotthebus. Follow the LiNCHigher social media pages for more information.
