Mobile classroom promotes higher education

A new campaign is taking a mobile classroom on the road in a bid to increase the number of South Yorkshire teenagers going in to higher education. Education chiefs involved in Higher Education Progression Partnership South Yorkshire launched the mobile classroom in Barkers Pool with students from the University Technical College among the first to road test the new vehicle.  The campaign will travel across South Yorkshire, North East Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire. Research shows that fewer young people in the region go on to higher education at either a further education college or a university.
