"I am a Higher Education Champion working with neaco, one of 29 UniConnect partnerships across the country. We work with target students from schools and colleges in years 9 – 13 (or equivalent) to help students explore their next steps and make informed decisions about what is the right pathway for them; this varies from GCSE options, to post 16 and post 18 pathways to helping students learn more about the different pathways to a specific career or goal. I supported schools and colleges in Norfolk for 18months but during lockdown made the move to work with our target schools and colleges in Cambridgeshire."
