Case Study Alumni Logan Mee, Kemnal Technical College

Alumni, Logan Mee

During a visit to Goldsmiths University in February, we were delighted to see our alumni Logan, who is now a member of staff at his former school, Kemnal Technical College! Logan volunteered to support the Key Stage 3 learner visit and in conversation with our Schools Manager Justine, told her his education journey:

In 2017, when I was in Year 10, I attended a school trip with Aimhigher London to Kingston University, where I was really inspired by their Science Department, and I spent time discussing with the lecturers there, ALL the different course options. This led me to take Biology as an A-Level, and I achieved a good grade.

In 2021, a year after I left school, Kemnal Technology College contacted me and asked if I would be interested in a Science Technician apprenticeship, I jumped at the chance. I am now pursuing my career in science, successfully passing my apprenticeship, and working full time at my old school, where it all began.

When the on-campus trip to Goldsmiths came up in school through Aimhigher, I jumped at the chance. I kept putting myself in the students’ shoes and wondering how many of them got inspired and will use the trip the same way as I did, opening up new doors for them and forever changing their outlook of their future career.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to attend more trips like this, and I honestly really like how Aimhigher London connects schools to universities.

Learners on the Aimhigher London sustained and progressive programme come from a low socio-economic background, (read more on Our Learners). These young people are selected by their school coordinators to take part, on the basis that they are less represented in universities across the country. Our work with UniConnect and our members, delivers opportunities to address inequalities of access to higher education. These stories illustrate the impact of the sustained and progressive interventions.
