A CONTRACT WORTH 20,000 POUNDS HAS BEEN WON BY THE DEPARTMENT OF CONTINUING EDUCATION to provide Higher Education Gateway events in 2005/6 for the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth (NAGTY).

DCE will work with University departments to deliver master classes and other workshops for NAGTY members from across the UK.
