FutureMe

Hartlepool College of Further Education is part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) aimed at increasing the number of young people progressing to Higher Education (HE).

FutureMe

FutureMe is the programme of activity that will be offered to students in targeted areas and schools. Students taking part in FutureMe will have access to a range of activities and events to support them in considering their future options and learning about educational pathways available to them. By taking part in FutureMe activities we want young people to: 

  • Have the opportunity to plan for their future and gain an understanding of what can support them in reaching their goals
  • Have access to high quality information and support to help them consider whether higher education is the right option for them 
  • Have an increased awareness and understanding of higher education opportunities and progression pathways in the region.

 

The North East Collaborative Outreach Programme (NECOP)

NECOP is part of the NCOP initiative which is funded by the Office for Students (OfS). NCOP involves 29 consortia across England who are all working to support the governmentís aims to: 

  • double the proportion of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education (HE) by 2020
  • increase by 20 per cent the number of students in HE from ethnic minority groups
  • address the under-representation of young men from disadvantaged backgrounds in HE.

The 29 consortia will deliver programmes of collaborative outreach in specific local areas where HE participation is low overall and lower than expected given GCSE attainment levels.

 

Hartlepool College already works with more than 700 students a year for Higher Education awareness and we have recruited a Student Aspirations (FutureMe) Coordinator to work with the existing award-winning Careers team to embed student mentoring, group sessions, unique HE visits and tailored one-to-one sessions into college life.

 

The www.futureme.ac.uk website has also been launched to help young people and their parents and carers to learn more about the higher education options available to them.

 

For further information on what activities and opportunities are available please contact Student Support.
