A group of students from Peele Community College in Long Sutton have been learning about higher education at The College of West Anglia (CWA) as part of the LiNCHIGHER Project.

This is part of a national initiative to increase aspirations with the overall aim of increasing access to higher education.

CWA organised for a group of 19 Peele students to attend enrichment sessions, over a four-week period, at the college’s Wisbech and King’s Lynn campuses.

They took part in practical workshops covering engineering, construction, motor vehicle, sport and uniformed services, learning about the higher education and career opportunities available in each field.

The outreach programme concluded with each of the students receiving a certificate in recognition of their participation.
