NCOP: Making it happen in Essex
Make Happen is the name of the NCOP consortium for the county and is based at the University of Essex. Their programme is dedicated to inspire young people, raise their aspirations and promote interest in higher education as a route to achieving their ambitions.
With a team of seven Outreach Officers based at partner institutions across the county, Make Happen has developed an innovative school and college-led model that provides events and activities tailored to the specific needs of the targeted learners.
Since December 2017, Make Happen has engaged with 16,000 students, 9,000 of whom are identified as NCOP learners (39% of all NCOP learners in the county). With over 140 different events and activities, learners have experienced motivational and inspirational talks and assemblies, STEM, medical and healthcare workshops, Sports Science, Art & Design, Teaching Careers and Revision Skills sessions, to name but a few.
