The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership (NERAP) is a collaboration between all of the universities in the North East working together to support young people to think about their futures and how higher education can help them reach their goals.
Individually, each university in the region delivers a wide range of programmes and activities to support higher education decision making. Jointly, we coordinate a range of collaborative activities for students in late Primary and Secondary education and specific targeted support for underrepresented groups. The Partnership also delivers events for teachers, advisers, parents and carers to support information, advice and guidance given to young people across the region.
All NERAP activity is free of charge, and consists of in-school sessions, on-campus visits, and specific activities for Looked After Young People and Young Carers.
