Claire Briggs

Education Outreach Coordinator

Hi, my name is Claire and I am originally from York. I studied my undergraduate degree at the University of Leeds, reading Geography. As such, I am particularly interested in population issues and how deprivation can affect life chances.

Since graduating, I worked as a Cover Supervisor in a secondary school for a year, before joining York St John as an Education Outreach Coordinator. The most important part of my role is to inform young people about higher education and its benefits and to explain why York St John might be the right place for them.

I mainly work with schools and colleges along the Yorkshire Coast and in Leeds. As part of my role, I am involved with a variety of Widening Participation Projects. These include Roots to Success and the Year 12 Summer School.

Within York St John, I work closely with York Business School to ensure they continue to have a high number of applications every year. I am very passionate about my role and believe that higher education should be an option available to all regardless of background.
