Shaping Futures, a new collaborative outreach programme for the Liverpool City Region, has joined the Educate Awards as associate sponsors.
The organisation is sponsoring the Leadership Team of the Year Award, which recognises a school’s successful leadership and management.
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. It 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.
