Pupils in Derry-Londonderry will learn business and entrepreneurial skills to increase their engagement in education and give them greater confidence in their own abilities.
At the forefront of the scheme is the Foyle Learning Community, which has a leading role in educational attainment in the city and reflects Ulster University’s commitment to opening doors to higher education. Ulster University aims to create shared spaces for education that can bring together communities while offering aspiration-raising engagement for young people.
Dr Malachy, Director of Regional Engagement at Ulster University said: "At Ulster University, we pride ourselves on our strong links with local schools and strive to create a welcoming environment on our campus for activities that benefit the local community.
Working together with Foyle Learning Community and Manchester United Foundation, we aim to inspire students by fostering skills and self-belief that they will carry with them throughout their education and future careers.
