The Impact

I love hearing the impact that access work has had on incoming Freshers and hope that the mentoring and guidance through Track to Trin will bring high-achieving black students one step closer to applying and getting into Cambridge.

About the scheme

Track to Trin is an innovative, student-led pilot mentoring scheme for Black Year 12 students and set to launch in March. Created by outgoing Trinity College Students’ Union (TCSU) Access and BME officers, Elizabeth Beevers and Serena Cole, the programme will be run, virtually, from April to September 2021. PhD students from Trinity’s postgraduate academic community will be selected to lead monthly online supervision-style sessions with Black Year 12 students, aiming to offer guidance and super-curricular support.

This scheme aims to ensure that Trinity College targets groups who are most underrepresented at the university, ensuring that access to academic materials and application support resources are available to all, irrespective of background.This scheme will equip participants with skills and resources to boost their attainment, as well as developing their academic curiosity for their chosen subject. In the later stages of the programme, attention will be turned to developing confidence for their upcoming university applications. Sessions will run be alongside workshops led by Trinity Ambassadors, focusing on interview skills and personal statement writing.

You can find out more about the programme via a news article on our website.
