Following the welcome news from the OfS that funding for UniConnect will continue, albeit with reduced allocations, partnerships are reviewing their programmes for 2022 and beyond. The pandemic had a dramatic effect on the delivery and evaluation of UniConnect activities but also resulted in some exciting new activities that will influence the future offer to school and college students. Our recent NERUPI report ‘Experiences of Outreach in the Pandemic’ makes a number of recommendations that will support UniConnect partners revising their plans. The report was the result of collaborative research developed by the NERUPI UniConnect Working Group and you can access the Executive Summary here. The full report is available on the members's area of the NERUPI website.
