We work with young people who live in areas of East Anglia where participation in higher education is low, and much lower than expected based on GCSE-level attainment.

Gaps in young participation in higher education

Across East Anglia, 74 areas have been identified where participation in higher education is low overall and lower than would be expected given GCSE attainment. These areas are shown in red on the map above.

neaco is funded to work with students between year 9 - 13 living in these wards. We are working closely with the local schools and colleges these students attend, as well as in their communities.
