I was fortunate to take part in the DANCOP ‘Learn to work’ scheme, which consisted of discussing career paths with external employers.

We finished the scheme with a trip to a construction company. After the programme I succeeded in securing a role as a Marketing Executive for a welding company. I learnt that as long as you work hard and reach out for support that anything can be possible.

DANCOP
  • Targeted Outreach

    Our delivery team provides targeted outreach in specific wards where progression to higher education is lower than expected given the attainment level. With our extensive activity menu and flexible delivery methods we can work with you to find the right support for your learners.

  • The Outreach Hub

    The outreach hub showcases the full outreach offer available to you and your learners across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. We work with you to identify gaps in the outreach provision currently available and can offer funding support for your initiatives. We work strategically across the region to address local needs and come up with outreach programmes which will support specific groups of learners.

  • DANCOP in schools

    We fund DANCOP roles in schools across the region to provide high quality in-reach support to learners. Our funded school roles work with learners 1:1 and in small groups to offer focused careers guidance and support.

Our Education Partners

Our collaborative network is made up of education institutions across our region. We work together with the shared aim of supporting learners to succeed.
