Education Outreach Coordinator

Ollie Johnson, Education Outreach Coordinator

I have been involved with York St John University for many years. I studied my undergraduate History course between 2015-2018 and loved every minute of it. I later completed my PGCE in Secondary History teaching a few years later.

I still have a strong passion for History and love listening to music and playing guitar. I am from York originally and have no intentions of leaving a city that I consider myself very lucky to call my home.

I now work as part of the Student Recruitment and Widening Participation team at York St John. As an Education Outreach Coordinator, it is my role to attract prospective students to consider York St John as a destination for their higher education studies. This means that I travel regionally and nationally to events and schools to deliver talks, activities, and be a part of higher education/job fairs. My progression schools are mainly located in the North East and I attend several events at these each year.

My role also consists of Widening Participation: targeting students and areas that statistically do not progress onto University for varying reasons. The projects that I help to administer and deliver as part of my Widening Participation role are Yor Student Journey and working with Military Service Children.

I take great pleasure in my role, as I strongly believe the University and the wider City of York to be a special place that is perfect for students of all ages and backgrounds.
