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

This assembly is designed to help your students understand this competitive route into Higher Education, giving them the tools to start their research and excite their interest.

Introduction to Higher Education – Parent Event

This event can be tailored to suit but usually lasts for one hour. The session brings students and parents together to discuss the various routes into Higher Education, why people go into HE, the skills required and the courses available. It aims to dispel common myths and provide both students and parents with the confidence to explore options and make informed decisions about the future.

Activities
