Rebecca has worked in Widening Participation (WP) for the past 4 years. Working firstly in a mentoring position with students from WP backgrounds, then within an advisory capacity in a college and finally as an Outreach Officer. Most of these roles have been working for the University of East Anglia to improve social mobility within the Norfolk and Suffolk regions.
Due to her work predominantly with BTEC/Vocational learners in her advisory role in the college, Rebecca now specialises in working with BTEC students in colleges to help them to progress to Higher Education and advising internal members of staff on how to improve opportunities for vocational learners to aid transition when they attend the university. Rebecca has been a sub-chair of NEON’s ‘Supporting BTEC students’ Working Group since 2019.
