Future Quest’s 2017–2018 programme was officially launched at UWE Bristol’s Exhibition and Conference Centre on Wednesday 8 November. The formal reception brought together a range of educational partners in Bristol and keynote speakers from local business and universities in Bristol to officially launch an exciting programme of work.
The event celebrated the Future Quest programme to date, including the students involved, the activities that have taken place, and the programme’s city-wide reach. The event was well-attended with over 200 people attending from schools, local businesses, colleges and universities.
During the launch we received speeches from Future Quest participants from Year 10, Year 11 and Year 13 about their experiences of the project so far, as well as current undergraduates from UWE Bristol and University of Bristol.
The event was a success with a great atmosphere of people connecting and chatting through their experiences and plans for Future Quest. The launch event really showed the City of Bristol coming together to support the progression of young people to Higher Education.
