Summer Symposium 2020
The National Education Opportunities Network was delighted to work with a number of partners for the 2020 Summer Symposium.
MyTutor is the leading platform for online one-to-one tuition. We match the most inspiring, high calibre tutors from UK Universities with secondary school pupils, to ensure they have the confidence and grades they need to enter the next stage of education.
Trusted by over 400 schools, our tuition programmes boost pupil confidence and results. On average, just 12 hours of one-to-one tuition through the platform raises attainment by 1 whole grade. As our lessons are all delivered online, it’s easy for Universities and NCOPs to offer MyTutor to a range of pupils including local offer holders, GCSE students or partner schools, providing a life-changing resource that raises attainment and aspirations in a tangible way for your target pupils.
At Medical Mavericks we are opening the door to the world around the students we see, just enough so they can get a tantilising taste that will drive their ambition and inspire them to find out more. If they want it, they will kick down the door to open it further and do what ever it takes to run through it into a world they never thought possible.
We inspire the next generation of medics and scientists by taking real medical and sports science equipment into schools, colleges & events all over the UK. We like to describe ourselves and the UK’s No 1, OMG, jaw dropping Careers, STEM & Sports Science Enrichment Experience for schools, colleges and events!

AbilityNet are a charity that uses technology to remove barriers to participation at home, at work and in education. We wanted to provide a scalable way to help prospective university students from underrepresented groups to build their confidence and identify strategies and support services so they can succeed in their studies. We created www.mystudymyway.com a student led online platform that invites users to complete a self-reflective questionnaire identifying goals and challenges they may face as they transition into university. The platform then provides a personalised ‘to do’ list giving them self help advice and guidance and signposting them to engage with support services to help them get the very best out of their university experience. The platform is designed to encourage, support and guide students as they transition into University and onwards into their career of choice. It can be used in outreach activities and through the application, offer and arrival process and beyond. It provides HEIs with essential aggregated data relating to challenges identified by underrepresented groups. This enables outreach and inhouse support teams to act to tailor their activities to address areas where students have concerns in a targeted way and use the data to provide evidence for their access and participation plans. We also provide a range of other services including needs assessments, training and digital accessibility services.
