New outreach programme launched to help region’s schools

New  outreach programme has been launched which will be delivered across the Liverpool City Region.
Shaping Futures is part of the wider National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) which has been funded by HEFCE.
Formerly MNCO, the aim of the network is to provide schools and colleges with support in accessing information about outreach and widening participation activities offered by the partner institutions involved in the network.
The outreach programme will work with young people from electoral wards where the progression to Higher Education (HE) is lower than expected, given the GCSE attainment in that area.
Shaping Futures – which has just been announced as the Leadership Team of the Year sponsor at Educate Awards 2017 – will have a core programme which will be delivered to selected schools and a wide range of bespoke events.
One such event is the ‘Through the Eyes of Boys’, which is a pilot project which will work with young men from disadvantaged backgrounds to improve their attainment and raise their aspirations while also teaching important life skills. This project will be launched on May 17 2017.
Shaping Futures is also sponsoring a dedicated zone at the Big Bang Fair North West, taking place on Tuesday 4 July 2017 and hosting a Healthcare Skills Show at the University of Liverpool in October.
