The Education Network Hull office have agreed a new sponsor package as it looks to support children attending the Salmon Grove-based Hull Children’s University.

The university offers primary children the opportunity to benefit from life-changing learning experiences which fire the imagination and inspire new ambition.

This includes trips to London, HMS Belfast, the opportunity of a sleepover under the dinosaurs in the Natural History Museum – or even visit to a local business to learn more about their industry.

The Education Network will be a bronze level sponsor as part of its commitment to supporting the children’s charity in 2016.

The move will see the recruitment specialists working closely with the youngsters and university staff, providing mentoring and support during and excursions.

Nikki Moxon, said she and her colleagues were keen to be involved as part of their work with the city’s schools.

“We already support a number of primary schools, so the opportunity to extend this as a university sponsor was ideal. We’re delighted to be involved and very much look forward to working with them on a number of exciting projects in the new year.”

Rose James, Partnership Manager at Hull Children’s University, said: “We would like to thank The Education Network for becoming a sponsor.

“We work with many children who might otherwise never get the chance to take part in activities that offer life-changing experiences if it weren’t for the generosity of people such as Nikki and her colleagues.”
