National Collaborative Outreach Programme

HEFCE recently announced their new National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) aimed at boosting participation in HE in some of the most disadvantaged communities.

The NCOP is a four-year programme, which will run in calendar years from January 2017 to December 2020 . It seeks to work with young people, via 29 geographically located consortia in these disadvantaged areas, that are achieving the qualifications they need to put them on a trajectory for HE but who are clearly taking a different path.

EMWPREP are working with four consortia (Pathways; LiNC Higher; DANCOP and Higher Horizons) to lead on the monitoring, evaluation and tracking of their NCOP activity.

An interactive map of the geographical locations covered by these four consortia can be found below:
