Widening Participation in Higher Education

Nottingham College University Centre is part of DANCOP- a collaborative network between universities and colleges across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire that exists to provide targeted higher education outreach programmes to secondary schools and colleges across the two counties. We are proud to be a part of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme and our work focuses on specific target wards where we have the opportunity to inspire and inform about higher education and the opportunities it brings.


Working DANCOP provides you with the opportunity to access a range of Higher Education outreach activities for years 9-13, information sessions for parents and CPD opportunities for you and colleagues.

The activities that we can offer include information sessions on all of the topics you and your learners might want to know about higher education and higher degree apprenticeships, finance and budgeting, writing personal statements and a range of hands-on subject taster sessions.


If you are aged 13-18 and live Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, we may be working with your school or college to offer you the opportunity to learn more about Higher Education, including Higher and Degree Apprenticeships. In the meantime you can find out more from the DANCOP resources pages: or alternatively you can view our leaflet.
