The University of Manchester has helped wider participation students by improving their employability skills.

Improving employability for wider participation students

Gaining a degree doesn't necessarily level the playing field for all graduates when it comes to finding a job. The University of Manchester has been trying out a scheme to change that and get more students from disadvantaged backgrounds into better jobs after graduation. As Andrew Whitmore from the university careers service explains, it looks to be getting positive results.
