IntoUniversity - February 2022
IntoUniversity has a selection of centres across the different London Boroughs which provide local learning and aspirational programmes for young people. These programmes work towards encouraging these young people to work towards a place in university or towards their own goals and careers. SPSM has had a long relationship with IntoUniversity and another cohort 'graduated' on 4th February 2022 (photos and videos of the event can be viewed at the end of this page). Please read on to find a snapshot of our previous year working together:
