Linking London NCOP Hub Offer


Building on Linking London’s experience of developing sustained and productive relationships between London universities, colleges and key stakeholders, our NCOP outreach hub officers will be working collaboratively with London college staff and our university partners to help improve the social mobility of college learners by widening participation into and through higher education. We will work to support London college staff, including teachers and advisers in a number of ways, in addition to the positive student facing activities undertaken by the NCOP targeted work. Our outreach hub support will include:

  • Acting as a point of contact and support for college teachers and advisers to find out about and access outreach activity offered by London higher education institutions
  • Identifying and sharing existing good practice in supporting college learners to make informed choices and successful transitions into and through higher level learning, including higher and degree apprenticeships
  • Working with colleges to identify gaps in outreach support and provide a brokerage role with our HE partners to deliver existing or new provision
  • Developing a range of innovative resources aimed at both college staff and learners
  • Delivering a range of staff development opportunities
  • Providing a platform for London universities, colleges and other key organisations to develop a more coherent offer to college learners to help address educational disadvantage, taking into account the higher level skills needs for London.  

We have been meeting with London further education and 6th form colleges to gain an understanding of their needs and priorities and how our partner universities can support their work. We plan to run a series of events in the spring and summer terms to provide networking opportunities between college staff and our university partners and will be sharing regular updates via an e-bulletin on our outreach hub offer and how you can be involved early next year.

The website for the London NCOP Outreach Hub, which focuses on schools as well as colleges, can be found here. This will be updated with news, events and resources in the New Year when the site is fully launched.

If you would like to find out more about our work please contact our NCOP Hub Officers Jess and Melanie
