Homerton employs a Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer, Emma Smith. Emma attended the Brooksbank School, in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, and graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in Archaeology in June 2015. During her time as a student she worked on a large number of schemes to raise aspirations for under-representated students.
Emma is responsible for building and maintaining relationships with schools and colleges and encouraging students from different backgrounds to consider applying to Homerton, or more generally to the University. She works with students from Years 7-13 and runs events that focus on the benefits of Higher Education, attending a top institution such as Cambridge or raising aspirations more generally. These can take the form of HE fairs and conferences to specialised presentations and day visits.
Emma also attends UCAS events, co-ordinates Homerton’s Summer Schools and visits state-maintained schools and colleges in Homerton’s Link Areas.
To find out more information and discuss particular access and outreach opportunities please contact Emma either by email or by phone.
