NCOP Pathways Programme

The University of Northampton is working very closely with Corby Technical School on the Government funded NCOP Pathways programme. They are providing a wide range of exciting opportunities and events for students across the county from year 9 to 13 to help raise aspirations and awareness of the opportunities that exist within higher education and beyond, as well as supporting us in enthusing our students in their academic studies.

As a school we engage in activities  to develop this relationship with the University of Northampton throughout the lifetime of the Pathways programme:
