This morning Queen’s University announced that eye4education would be the official delivery partner for the Discovering Queen’s Programme and the Queen’s Academy in 2014. Two years ago Darren Nixon first met with Ms Isabel Jennings, Director at Queen’s University to discuss the possibility of working with eye4education as a workshop resource and network tool to engage with schools in order to build foundation for a partnership on the two programmes. Due to the success of pilot programmes in which eye4education has been involved curing 2013, today’s news cements that partnership.
Discovering Queen’s is a programme set up to provide students with a holistic view of what Queen’s has to offer as a University. The Queen’s Academy was set up to focus on those students who are able but less likely to attend Queen’s University and provide them a better opportunity to do so.
