Push are eager to support all NCOPs in their specific regions by enhancing their initiatives through our unique approach.
We’re extremely proud of the impact we’ve had with the NCOPs we've worked with so far.
We’d love to continue helping as many students across the country as possible, by raising young people's aspirations and inspiring them to make the most informed choices. Achieving this collaboratively is a particularly wonderful (and very powerful) thing.
Our USP as an NCOP delivery partner is to run sessions which grab young people's attention, in a funny and inspiring way. Through our unique approach, we are able to effectively engage with a wide range of students, particularly those who initially seemed the least interested.
As with all our outreach, we get students both thinking about and discussing what they want from life, what's best for them and how they can get it.
Push delivers impartial and independent careers education to all students, which effectively fulfils Ofsted and DfE requirements. We also have a National Careers Award for working with young people, and have over 25 years of experience in delivering outreach.
Push founder and chief executive Johnny Rich, higher education and careers specialist, ensures that each part of our student framework meets Push's five I's:
We have presenters located across the country. Our speakers are all trained to Push's high standard, and creating an engaging and lively atmosphere comes naturally to them.
Our sessions can last anything from an hour to a whole day - in schools, college or even external HE and careers events.
Push have already proudly supported 1,000s of young people in association with Force Higher. We have achieved this through a host of inspiring and informative careers education presentations and workshops, designed specifically for Year 9-13 students. These help raise students' aspirations, make an informed post-18 choice, and encourage pathways into higher education for those who may not have previously considered it.
With FORCE we have successfully achieved this inspirational student engagement at 25 different schools and colleges. This followed on from visits with 45 schools and colleges from when FORCE worked as a NNCO.
Over 85% of students across all these sessions rated our sessions 5/5 or 4/5 with over 80% stating that they felt better informed thanks to Push.
Check out an example of one of our recent employability sessions from the FORCE campaign, delivered by one of our presenters, Moj Taylor. We have a full version, as well as a 15 minute version available for your convenience.
With FORCE, we delivered talks on Choosing a Uni, Why Go to Uni, Options at 18 and Employability. These covered a range of areas of personal and professional development, and provide a model that can be easily adapted.
Visit our Sessions pages for a full list of topics that Push deliver. We are more than happy to tailor any of these topic areas to create bespoke sessions that suit the specific needs of NCOPs.
