NCOP - Helping young people progress to higher education

This is a great opportunity to be part of a dedicated team working on an initiative that will make a real difference, ensuring that significantly more young people in the Sheffield City Region progress into higher education (HE), and improving the lives of young people from underprivileged backgrounds.

We're recruiting to a range of different roles. Whether you're someone who:

• enjoys direct interaction with young people to raise their aspirations.
• has data analysis skills that can help us evaluate and adapt our approach.
• is a highly skilled administrator and organiser who can help the programme run smoothly.

What are HEPP and NCOP?

The Higher Education Progression Partnership (HEPP) is a longstanding collaborative widening participation initiative jointly funded by Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield to work with a wide range of external partners to improve progression to university from socially disadvantaged areas.

HEPP has an excellent reputation for delivering high quality outreach and widening participation activities.

Now we have been awarded HEFCE funding to build on this success, leading the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) within South Yorkshire - also covering parts of North East Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire - which will significantly enhance the HEPP offer to schools and colleges.
