NEON Summer Symposium 2019
The National Education Opportunities Network was delighted to work with a number of partners for the 2019 Summer Symposium.
The Access Platform is an edtech company based in Central London. Our mission is to enable universities to build awareness, confidence, and a sense of belonging with prospective students anywhere in the world.
We currently work with institutions in the UK, US, and Europe and, every month, enable thousands of prospective students from hundreds of countries to learn about university, and to make more informed, confident, and ambitious choices about their future. We’re innovative and forward thinking and regularly blog, tweet, and speak about issues and trends in the sector.
We were founded by George Olesen, Nik Higgins, and Dominic O’Neill. We have been Startup in Residence at Pearson College London, part of the UCL Educate Winter 2017 cohort, and are currently part of the King’s 20 Accelerator based at King’s College London.
MADE are the UK’s trusted experts in thinking, learning and revision strategies. Using a combination of outstanding, highly qualified trainers, quality resources and a uniquely engaging delivery mechanism, MADE empowers and equips delegates with the skills and mindsets to achieve their best possible results. MADE offers a programme of one and two hour workshops as ‘stand alone’ sessions or as part of a progressive series; aimed at helping students to enhance their ability to study independently, build their confidence, increase their resilience, raise their attainment and make a successful transition into Higher Education and the world of work.
The Inspirational Learning Group develop and deliver innovative world-class programmes and events for schools, colleges, universities and businesses, designed to engage, inspire and motivate young people to be the best that they can be. Our flagship programme, The National Enterprise Challenge is the UK’s largest enterprise and employability competition for secondary schools in the UK and has seen in excess of 250,000 young people inspired so far.
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.
Tuition boosts pupil confidence and results. On average just 12 hours of one-to-one tuition through the platform raises attainment by an average of 1 grade. As MyTutor is an online resource, it is easy for Universities and NCOPs to offer this 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!
