Next Steps South West is a new partnership project working with university and college institutions in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset to help provide information and increase Higher Education (HE) participation from disadvantaged backgrounds. This project is now following the previous NNCO scheme named Next Steps Cornwall and the Devon Collaborative Outreach Network (DCON) that ended in December 2016.
We are now bigger and better with 13 partners across the South West. Please see our news item for more information: ‘Consortium awarded 5.5 million to increase HE Participation from disadvantaged backgrounds’.
University level study opens doors to brighter futures and all partners are working together to help students from all backgrounds find out about how they can take advantage of those opportunities. This website can help you to choose your next steps in education, find out about funding, look for employment and to generally find out what it is like to study at a higher level.
Next Steps South West is developing a new website that will replace this one and also the Devon Collabortive Outreach Network website. We will let you know when this is launched.
