Merseyside Network for Collaborative Outreach (MNCO)

Merseyside Network for Collaborative Outreach (MNCO)

The MNCO is a newly formed collaborative partnership, which has been formed as part of the HEFCE National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) project

The MNCO is a collaborative partnership between the higher education institutions and further education colleges located in Greater Merseyside. The aim of the network is to provide schools and colleges with a Single Point of Contact (SPoC) to support teachers and stakeholders in accessing information about outreach and widening participation activities offered by the partner institutions involved in the network.
