North East Raising Aspiration Partnership

The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership is a collaboration of the five universities in the North East of England, working together to support young people to think about their futures and how higher education can help them reach their goals.

We provide a wide range of free in-school and online workshops/activities on a variety of topics on behalf of all of our university Partners for students in Key Stage 2 and 4. Please view our Outreach Activities to see what is on offer!

We are also committed to providing additional support for students who are care experienced or a young carer.  These targeted programmes provide an immersive experience to support young people throughout their educational journey. Click here for our current programme.
