Outreach hub


As part of the second phase of the Cumbria Collaborative Outreach Programme (which commenced in August 2019) Hello Future has developed an Outreach Hub to support all Cumbrian schools and colleges in accessing Higher Education Outreach Activity available in the county, and provide a platform for wider collaboration between Higher Education Providers (HEPs).

The Outreach Hubs represent the Office for Students commitment to;

“Supporting collaboration in the longer term by funding sustainable local partnerships with cross- England coverage to help schools and colleges access the higher education outreach they need and provide a platform for wider collaboration, including with regard to joined up careers advice.”

Learner Need Progression Plan

We deliver a sustained and intensive programme of activities for young people in years 9 – 13 which has been built upon feedback from young people, local teachers and advisors and our range of partners. This feedback highlighted the importance of developing confidence, self-esteem, resilience, determination and independence in young people.

The Hello Future programme is underpinned by our Evaluation Framework as well as the Cumbria LEP skills plan, OFSTED and CEIAG guidance, all of which we aim to support throughout the delivery of activities.
