During Point 1 of the Catalyst Programme, we run an interactive workshop, hosted by a school in each of our hubs, for Y8 students.

This workshop encourages participants to explore three key questions:

  • Who goes to university?
  • Why would someone want to go to university?
  • What are different universities like?

After our point 1 visits in 2022, 76% of students agreed or strongly agreed that they understood the key features of a university – a huge increase from the 31% who agreed or strongly agreed with the same statement before the workshops – while 93% agreed or strongly agreed that they knew how going to university would benefit them.

Take a look at some of the great work produced by students during our Point 1 events in the gallery below:
