NCOP Update

Over the summer we have been busy developing our work on the NCOP programme. There has been a lot of change in the office over the last months and we now have three new members of staff who joined us in late July and August - Sarah Fisher, our new Programme Office, Michelle Giordmaina, our new NCOP Engagement Officer, and Naomi Smith, our new Graduate Intern.

In July we held our first Delivery Hub meetings for Hubs 1 and 2, where we met with College staff and university partners who will be delivering activities in these areas. This was a great chance for us all to meet and discuss the plans for September onwards. We also discussed progress on the NCOP at the Linking London Board meeting, and opened up the third round of bidding for partner funding as part of the Outreach pot. The NCOP Governing Body met at the end of July, which was a useful opportunity to speak with the other networks involved with the London NCOP and discuss our plans and progress so far.

During August we have welcomed three new members of staff to the NCOP team. Sarah Fisher has joined us a new Programme Officer, Michelle Giordmaina is the new NCOP Engagement Officer, and Naomi Smith is our new Graduate Intern. The new team members are settling in well and making a valuable contribution to our work. We have been focussing on resource development during August, and are in the process of creating a number of resources aimed at learners, College staff, and parents and carers. As a result of an NCOP planning day, we are getting closer to finalising the timetables and plans for delivery for Year 2 learners from September, and Year 1 learners from January 2018, and we look forward to getting back in touch with our College partners after the summer break to finalise this.
