Reaching Wider has been working in collaboration with Swansea Union Student Media to deliver a ‘Student Media Event’ to care experienced young people from South West Wales. The young people spent a day working with Swansea Student Media staff and volunteers to create and edit their own TV and radio news broadcasts and newspaper articles. They also had a tour of the Singleton Campus and talked with current students about their own paths to university and the subjects they had chosen to study.
All of the young people taking part stated that they wished to go to university more as a result of the experience. One young person described the day as “amazing”.
The South and West Wales Reaching Wider partnership offers a range of learning and aspiration raising activities to those living in Communities First areas and care experienced young people from across South West Wales.
Reaching Wider offers casual work opportunities for university students who wish to gain experience of working with young people. Our opportunities can fit around your timetable, boost your CV, count towards your HEAR award and also offer generous rates of pay.
