Future U is a collaborative project bringing together universities, colleges, schools and businesses from across Lancashire.
Future U is all about empowering young people with the knowledge and opportunities to succeed. Through an engaging programme of events and outreach activities, they aim to help young people overcome any barriers to their progression. Future U is part of the Office for Students Uni Connect Programme, which supports young people to progress onto Higher Education (HE) in areas where it has been identified HE participation of young people is much lower than expected. Future U is committed to this goal and has links with local HE and FE (Further Education) providers across the county, as well as community networks.
They have developed a programme of engaging outreach activities and events to help young people gain sustainable skills which will lead to progression, employment and drive prosperity; something which is key to Lancashire’s future.
