The National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) brings together 29 partnerships of universities, colleges and other local partners to deliver outreach programmes to young people aged 13 - 18.
Their work is focused on local areas where higher education participation is lower than might be expected given the GCSE results of the young people who live there.
Find out more about the National Collaborative Outreach Programme.
The NCOPs do not replace the work of the Excellence Hub and we will continue to run our events and liaise directly with you and your pupils as usual. However, the NCOPs do provide a range of additional events and activities which are likely to be of interest to you and your pupils. We will work closely with the NCOPs to promote each other’s activities and to support you in enhancing provision for your pupils.
Each of the three Excellence Hub partners are members of a different NCOP so please do explore their websites below and discover more about your local NCOP.
