The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership (NERAP), is a collaboration of the five universities in the North East; Durham University, Newcastle University, Northumbria University, University of Sunderland and Teesside University.
NERAP works with young people in the region across different Key Stages to equip them with the knowledge and skills to realise their academic potential in education, including care-experienced students, and other under-represented groups. Sessions for both students and parents/carers are available in this area.
The Partnership delivers programmes including ‘Choices Together’ that provide opportunities and support to care-leavers in their educational journeys. NERAP focuses on inspiring young people from under-represented groups, to fully explore all higher education opportunities by providing progressive and intensive programmes of support. We aim to make a measurable difference in young people’s learning, attitudes, knowledge, and confidence to progress through education and fulfil their aspirations.
