New learning centre in Craigmillar
IntoUniversity Craigmillar opened in April 2021, providing additional educational support to young people aged 7–18 living in an area traditionally associated with social deprivation.
The establishment of the new learning centre in Craigmillar to respond to educational disadvantage and improve access to higher education and training and is a ground-breaking collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, the University of Glasgow and education charity IntoUniversity.
It is one of three new centres to be established in Scotland through the partnership, with two more based in Glasgow.
Support for young people is provided through free after-school academic tuition, mentoring with university students and local professionals, in-school aspiration-raising workshops and work experience opportunities.
The centre is inclusive of all academic abilities and aims to help young people to achieve a university/college place or another positive destination.
This Edinburgh education facility is managed day-to-day by IntoUniversity, who currently run 35 centres across England and Scotland.
71% of school leavers who attended existing IntoUniversity centres in 2020 went on to progress to university, compared with 26% of students from similar backgrounds nationally.
