Lifelong Learning Centre

John Lees

I am the External Liaison Officer in the Communities and Partnerships team at the LLC. My role involves working with organisations such as Further Education colleges to widen access to Higher Education for people who are under-represented at university. Through a wide range of provisions I work in partnership with Further Education providers to offer support and guidance to students who have often already begun their learning journey and are now looking to take their next steps into Higher Education. I also support my colleagues Olivia, Fiona and Casey to engage communities where Higher Education study may not be perceived as a realistic option. I believe it is important that universities are more representative of the wider communities they serve and I feel privileged to be in a position to effect positive change in this area.
