London NCOP- Linking London Update

Over the summer, Linking London NCOP has organised a variety of exciting experiences for our learners.

In July, we held two extremely successful summer schools. “Yes You Can” was created in collaboration with our partner the University of East London and well attended by our partner colleges in Hub 1. Students had the fantastic experience of staying overnight on campus in halls of residence and attending an assortment of activities such as confidence building, debating, a UCAS fair and even an escape room to exercise their skills in team work.

July also saw the reprise of our collaborative creative summer school in partnership with the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Ravensbourne University London and Goldsmiths University London. Students from Havering College of Further and Higher Education, Barking and Dagenham College and Havering Sixth Form College had the amazing experience of visiting three universities; Goldsmiths University of London, Ravensbourne University London and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, for a brilliantly diverse range of activities. Students visited Body Worlds London, a musical at the Apollo Theatre, the Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art and enjoyed workshops in art, design and music. We created two videos documenting the summer schools which can be found here: https://youtu.be/CNNHDXFredM  (collaborative summer school) https://youtu.be/MqtfXtXm_ZQ (University of East London).

Additionally, we have been spending the summer planning delivery timelines for all our partner colleges and the university projects which will be working in them. So far, we are pleased to announce that we have approved 8 projects for this academic year. Our third round of bidding closes September 20th 2019 so there may be some more projects yet to come. We have also spent our time creating useful resources for Engagement Officers such as the ops guide and HE guide. Phase 2 officially began on August 1st and we are looking forward to a productive academic year with activities for students kicking off in September.
