Make Happen

Make Happen aims to inspire young people, raise their aspirations and promote interest in Higher Education to achieve their ambitions.


The National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) brings together 29 partnerships of universities, colleges and other local partners to deliver outreach programmes to young people in years 9 to 13.


Their work is focused on local areas where higher education participation is lower than might be expected given the GCSE results of the young people who live there.
