LET’S TALK ABOUT HIGHER EDUCATION…

LET’S TALK ABOUT HIGHER EDUCATION…

Our Mission

DANCOP is a collaborative network between universities and colleges across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire that exists to provide targeted higher education outreach programmes to secondary schools and colleges across the two counties. We are proud to be a part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme and our work focuses on specific target wards where we have the opportunity to inspire and inform about higher education and the opportunities it brings!

We would be delighted to hear from you to discuss eligibility to engage in your area.

Our latest activities

Activities

Society Challenge

These sessions can be run individually or as a full enterprise challenge-style day. Designed to develop your learners’ knowledge of higher education and university life through societies, we will use hands-on, practical examples to support them in understanding that university is not just about studying.

Activities

Make yourself employable

Learners will learn the importance of self-branding in the age of social media, whilst also looking at general skills that all businesses are looking for in future applicants.

Activities

Mock interview scheme

Preparing your learners for the world of interviews, DANCOP offer a one hour session with all the hints and tips for interview success. DANCOP can then offer a follow-up session of mock interviews for your learners to put everything they have learnt into practice. 

Activities

Confidence and resilience

Year 12 and 13 may be the first time some learners experience rejection, either through the university or apprenticeship applications processes. This session will help learners establish how to face these scenarios and build resilience to deal with them.

The National Careers Service has launched an online careers advent calendar offering 24 days of festive advice. Did you know that many careers can be enabled by a #degreeapprenticeship ? https://t.co/LWmqZ0pTsJ #CareersAdvent @NationalCareers

The STEM Bus tour has reached the final day of our 2018 tour and we are ending it with 3 great days at @QuarrydaleAcad! #TeamDANCOP #WeAreNCOP #OutreachWorks

Calling all parents of teenagers across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire! Part of DANCOP’s aims is to help demystify Higher Education for young people. If you find student finance a mystery and have no idea how to approach the challenge of assisting your son/daughter in making Higher Education choices… you are not alone! DANCOP will be working with partner schools and colleges to provide information sessions and events but please feel free to contact us if you would like to know more about how we can help you.
