The Western Outreach Network (WON)

The Western Outreach Network (WON) was formed in 2014 as part of the National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) scheme which aimed to encourage more young people into higher education (HE) by creating a single point of contact for all schools to access information about HE in their area. The WON covers schools in the west of England.

Our aims

The network focuses on raising awareness of higher education by improving access to outreach activities, providing support to teachers and career advisors in schools to ensure that all pupils have the chance to learn about higher education in the classroom, online and through local outreach activities.

What we do

The WON is a single point of contact for schools to access information about the outreach and Higher Education options available to them in their local area. The website provides information and resources for teachers, advisers, carers and parents about Higher Education whilst also providing the opportunity for the WON to come into schools to deliver information sessions to the pupils.
