Before university, I saw studying and a career in Law as something unobtainable. However the PARTNERS programme helped raise my aspirations and gave me the opportunity to study at a Russell Group University. Year 11 me would not have believed I would have graduated Newcastle University with a First Class Law Degree, and part of that journey was the PARTNERS programme!
