Meet the team


Kate Blackmore, Pathways to Law & Widening Participation Coordinator

I enjoy working with students of all ages from primary school to sixth form, and hope to provide experiences at university or in school to aspire these students to come to university in the future. I have now been working at the university for six years, and before that in Further Education in the north-west.

Ruth Waterfield, Project Officer, Marketing and Widening Participation

I have worked at the University for just over a year. I joined after graduation from the University of Gloucestershire where I gained a degree in Event Management. I thoroughly enjoy working with students of all ages and will try to ensure that whilst on campus all visitors have the best experience possible.
