What’s going on in Outreach and how do I find out?

imageAlthough we get plenty of great feedback on Reach, a number of teachers and education professionals have asked if there is a more regular way of directly receiving information on what’s happening in University of Sheffield outreach. So, starting this September, we are launching our WhatsApp Broadcast service – ‘SheffOutreach Broadcast’.

If you sign up using this form you will receive broadcast messages similar to a normal message on WhatsApp. You will be able to reply to us directly and privately. This should also reduce the volume of emails being sent out, minimising the number in your inbox.

To join the service, download the free WhatsApp app from your App or Play store and complete the short form. A confirmation text will be sent once we have received your details.

Following feedback, you may also notice that the Outreach and Widening Participation website has been re-designed and relaunched to make it clearer and easier for our partners and stakeholders to find the information that they need.

Visit the new website here www.sheffield.ac.uk/outreach

These pages include updated information about how to apply to our sustained outreach programmes. Following the successful launch of the online application form last year, the Outreach team have been working to improve the service for this year’s recruitment period.

The online application process makes it quicker to process applications and lets teachers monitor the progress of applications in real time as well as submitting information directly to the system.
