Make Happen is the regional Uni Connect (formerly NCOP) programme, part of the Office for Students. The programme brings together universities, colleges and local partners to deliver outreach programmes to young people in years 9 to 13, with a particular focus on areas where higher education participation is lower than might be expected given the GCSE results of the young people who live there.
Working with our partnership schools and colleges by 2019 Make Happen had reached 66,500 students through all kinds of activities such as events, workshops and tours. We continue to deliver a varied programme of activities to the same partner schools and colleges – all work being supported by continuous evaluation of the programme’s effectiveness.
Don’t miss out – whether you’re at school or college, or if you’re a parent or carer or a teacher, please register your interest and we’ll keep you up-to-date with events, news and really useful help and support.
