The Key Project

July 20th, 2012

On 11th of July, teachers, lawyers and supporters from the Access Project celebrated the end of a very successful first year for the Key Project.

The programme gives students the opportunity to benefit from weekly one-to-one mentoring from a tutor from Slaughter and May (as well as other organisations). With many of the sessions focusing around UCAS and personal statements we are hoping to see many of the students receive their places at Russell Group Universities this September. Other positive impacts of the scheme includes, improved aspirations, increased confidence, better articulation, greater knowledge of how to succeed and the opportunity to apply for valuable work experience placements in Slaughter and May’s Head Office.

The event was hosted in the offices of Slaughter and May, Moorgate. Speeches were given by Kate Hursthouse, Community Affairs Manager at Slaughter and May, Samyuktha Rajagopal , Trainee Solicitor at Slaughter and May and Key Project Tutor and Marcus Dilley, Assistant Headteacher, Head of Business at Central Foundation Boys’ School.

With 60 students from Years 10—13 benefitting from the Key Project in its first year we look forward to the year ahead with high hopes for the programme and the increasing numbers of tutors and students keen to get involved.

‘The Key Project has not only provided me with extensive support with my subjects, it has also allowed me to further develop my passion for my subjects through relevant and interesting extra-curricular activities.’

Yusef Labib, Year 12
