London NCOP-Linking London Update

Despite the end of the academic year looming, it has still been a busy month for NCOP Linking London. We carried out 40 activities across colleges in Hubs 1 and 2, with our total figures for the academic year now sitting at 746 activities with an engagement of 299 ward learners.

In Hub 1, a large variety of activity has taken place including IAG sessions from Middlesex University London in Barking and Dagenham College, TV/film workshops from Ravensbourne University London for Havering Sixth form College students and an extremely successful Psychology day run at Havering Sixth form College in collaboration with the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama which attracted over 110 attendees.

“The session was thoroughly informative and interesting” (Student after Psychology day session).

Also this month, 25 students from across all 3 colleges in Hub 1 had the pleasure of attending a 3 day residential summer school at the University of East London. Students had the opportunity to truly live the ‘student experience’ and attending subject tasters, confidence workshops, a UCAS fair and even an escape room. The feedback from the summer school was overwhelmingly positive and we would like to thank all those involved.

In Hub 2, Coulsdon Sixth Form College students have benefited from one to one personalised advice session with the college NCOP engagement officer as well as a theatre trip and HE trips to Bournemouth University and the University of Sussex.

We are delighted to have approved 7 projects from our partners to work on Phase 2 of the NCOP (starting in August 2019) with Linking London. The second round of bidding closed on July 1st and we look forward to the panel review of submissions. Planning is now well underway for next academic year, as well as some summer activities and resource creation.

The post survey (to be analysed in comparison with the pre-survey) is still underway in colleges. Evaluation officer, Ellen Randal, also intends to circulate the local evaluation framework to the London NCOP for comments before sending it off the OfS in July.
