NCOP Update

Heading into June we have now completed the pilot phase of the NCOP in the North East delivery Hub and had our final NCOP Steering Group meeting of the academic year. We have been pleased with how this phase has progressed and will be looking at building on the lessons learnt over the summer as we turn our attention to the other two delivery hubs as well as continuing to work in the North East Hub. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this stage and we very much look forward to our continued work with you all going forward.

During the pilot phase, we worked with Level 3 year 1 students from Havering College who took part in four interactive sessions delivered by Linking London. The sessions provided information and practical support looking at the whole range of HE opportunities available as well as career pathways. Learners also heard from student ambassadors from some of our partner HEIs who were able to give insight into what it is like to study at HE. We will also be supporting a parent and student ‘next steps’ event taking place at Havering college on 14th June. During this pilot phase, we have also been working with Barking and Dagenham College learners to help introduce the them to the options and choices they have coming up after their level 3 qualifications.

We are pleased to have now received nine partner bids to work with us on this programme across the three delivery hubs. These bids range from subject specific support, summer schools, mentoring scheme and study skill sessions alongside staff posts to coordinate the work. We are in the process of putting delivery hub meetings in the diary. Each of the three delivery hubs will have their own meetings and will play a key role in ensuring a joint up approach is adopted. We still have further funding available for more partners to get involved so please do get in touch.

Over the summer, the team will be planning activities, sessions and support to take place in all three delivery hubs, working very closely with our HEI partners who have submitted project proposals. We will also spend time developing and producing learner resources that will support the delivery of the programme.
