We’re Cleveland and Piers, we are the Higher Education Progression Officers at Bradford College. Our role is to widen participation in Higher Education. We help students explore the benefits of achieving a higher-level qualification, whether that’s studying for a degree at a college or university or alternative routes such as Higher and Degree Apprenticeships. We can work with you to raise aspirations and help you make an informed choice about your future studies.

To find out if you are eligible to participate in our exciting programme of activities, events and student support, please contact us for a chat. You can call us, email or pop in and see us. All our activities and events are free (including travel) and you can get involved in as many as you like. Some of the events that students have taken part in so far include a two-day residential in the Lake District, university trips and the Progression Module Plus qualification.

If you are eligible we may contact you via letter, your college email and text message. We can also visit you in classes and tutorials. You can keep updated about the activities and events planned by following us on Twitter (@NCOPbradford) and Facebook.

A list of activities and events is available now.
