Reaching Higher

Greater Manchester Higher is a collaborative network of higher education providers in Greater Manchester who are working together to raise the ambitions of young people and the awareness of higher education through providing impartial information, advice and guidance (IAG), alongside a menu of outreach activities.

We deliver the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) programme in Greater Manchester, which aims to support the government’s social mobility goals by rapidly increasing the number of young people from underrepresented groups who go into higher education.Our work focuses on Y9-13 learners and their key influencers.

This intervention is funded by Greater Manchester Higher and is only accessible to cohorts who meet the relevant eligibility criteria for NCOP. See for more information.
