“As Senior Project Manager for NCOP it has been really exciting to grow Go Higher West Yorkshire’s NCOP over the last year and a half. It has been a fantastic journey to go from early engagement of schools and recruitment of staff to seeing the dynamic programme of activity taking place across West Yorkshire.

It’s great to see the difference providing young people with opportunities to understand their Higher Education options and develop the skills and confidence they need to achieve makes. I’m really proud of the work we are doing to empower young people to make informed choices about Higher Education – through our direct work with young people in schools, colleges, academies and communities, but also by working with parents, carers, teachers and other professionals to provide young people with help when it’s needed. I’m looking forward to continuing to develop our work over the coming year and to continuing to support young people from across West Yorkshire to benefit from the opportunities that Higher Education can offer.”
