Region. UWS schools program

The University of Western Sydney is looking to try to ease school students into tertiary study through the Fast Forward Program which is part of the university’s schools strategic plan..It involves years 11 and 12 students attending a series of awards evenings, skills days and in-school mentoring. They get the opportunity to be matched with a UWS student whose studies relate to their interests and shadow them on a typical university day. “Fast Forward recognises the importance of engaging students with the concept of lifelong learning and the benefits of post-school education as early as possible so that students have the knowledge to plan their pathways in the senior years of schooling and beyond,” said the university’s manager of schools engagement, Anne McLean. About 600 year 9 students across Greater Western Sydney will be welcomed into the program this year.
