HEON

UCA is working with the Higher Education Outreach Network (HEON), a consortia of universities working together to deliver activity focussed on progression to Higher Education within Surrey and North East Hampshire. 

HEON is one of twenty nine local consortia to be funded under the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP). The NCOP aims to double the proportion of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in higher education (HE) by 2020. You can learn more about the NCOP on HEFCE's webpages, and view their press release.

As part of HEON, UCA delivers collaborative outreach to pupils in Years 9 to 13 who reside in specific wards. Young people will receive impartial Information Advice and Guidance on HE and progression routes, in order to support the government’s aim of increasing the university progression rates of young people living in the target wards. Staff at HEON’s partner institutions are funded to work collaboratively and inform young people of the variety of opportunities available at university, and how to navigate the path towards a HE course.

The Kent and Medway Collaborative Outreach Programme consists of a group of universities and colleges that have come together to deliver targeted outreach across Kent and Medway.
