Through an intensive period of consultation with schools, colleges and community groups, the partnership determined a number of interventions considered to be effective at inspiring and raising the aspirations of learners across Sussex.
The offer is broad and varied: enhanced STEM outreach, apprenticeship awareness, support for subject specific curricula; CPD for teachers; higher education champions; a parent and carer ambassador network; peer mentoring; role models; BAME mentoring for school pupils, city-wide CEIAG programme; new Level 4 curriculum development and transition support for young people not in education, employment or training.
Projects are delivered by higher education institutions, further education colleges, schools, local authorities, the third sector, independent training providers and community organisations, which ensures the programme is far reaching, widely recognised and maximising impact.
Thus far, the SLN:COP has engaged with over 6,000 young people and has been welcomed for providing new opportunities and establishing new ways of working.
