JS Group is delighted to announce that the University of Salford has selected Aspire Engage to deliver their new Salford Inspire scheme.
Salford Inspire is a new scheme that aims to:
• Encourage more students to select University of Salford as their first choice institution
• Provide support towards ancillary study costs
• Increase student engagement and success

From the start of the 2018/19 academic year, Salford Inspire will provide students with funds that they can use to purchase recommended learning resources for their courses. JS Group’s Aspire Engage solution will manage the scheme, provide on campus support to drive student engagement and operate an online student store making available a wide range of resources. In addition, Aspire Engage also provides actionable analytics to help track the impact of the scheme and to help ensure it remains fit for purpose.

Commenting on this new adoption of Aspire Engage, Peter Gray, Chairman and CEO of JS Group, said:

“We are really looking forward to working with University of Salford with their emphasis on providing students with real world experiences and their exceptional industry partnerships.
