Outreach Sample Clauses

Outreach. Not less than 30 days prior to the opening of bids or the selection of contractors, the Agency-Assisted Contractor or Contractor shall:
Outreach. The Contractor shall engage with NCIS industry outreach efforts and consider recommendations for hardening of covered contractor information systems affecting DON programs and technologies.
Outreach. We will introduce a range of new elements to our outreach activities that build on our existing widening participation programme. These are outlined in detail within our Widening Participation Plan (Appendix 1). Examples of new activities we will develop include: A targeted programme of on and off-campus generic and subject specific activities that link to the prospective student’s learning journey from Year 6 to Year 13. Introduction of subject specific INSET incorporating aspiration raising for teachers and teaching assistants. Increased interaction with parents/carers throughout the compulsory educational years of their children, through to pre-application to HE, including development of a parent/carer ambassador scheme. Provision of student finance information, information, advice and guidance (IAG) and regular contact with prospective students and their parents/carers, and teachers through e-newsletters, client focussed events, workshops and a new website. Development of our student ambassador programmes to increase the skills, experience and employability of students and encourage increased retention, attainment and progression among school/college participants; and where relevant earn points for our students towards our ‘Graduate Passport’. By adopting a more strategic and structured approach to outreach and widening participation across the University, with other institutions, organisations and agencies, we will enhance communication (internally and externally), ensuring a better level of service to prospects/students, teachers, parents and carers. This will provide: Enhanced pre-application and post application support for those at high risk of exclusion and non progression (i.e. under represented groups - Black and Minority Ethnic groups, Care Leavers, students from low participation neighbourhoods). A more output focussed approach through working in a targeted way with less ‘general’ aspiration raising and a clear focus on driving up academic attainment, leading to a realistic aspiration to progress to Higher Education, and with Access to Southampton providing a direct pathway for prospects to this institution, supporting application, transition and retention. Increased retention rates on our pre-application programme by providing a more joined up approach, with the development of programmes such as the Transition Scheme, with particular focus on those who are statistically more likely to ‘drop out’. Regular interaction and increased interaction...
Outreach. 6.1 We will seek to identify areas of under-representation in our student cohort, when compared to HE sector from which we recruit. If we identify an area of significant under-representation, we will seek to address this and may do so by considering whether there might be any effective outreach initiatives which could be directed at such groups.
Outreach. As documented in our last widening participation strategic assessment (WPSA), the University has performed well in regard to outreach volume measures, and generally well against the HEFCE benchmarks for access to the institution. However, our plans intend to address the following significant issues during the next five years:  Retain the stability of the intake of young full time undergraduates from widening participation backgrounds post the introduction of higher fees in the sector (as defined by current HEFCE benchmarks and Kent’s internal partnership targets).  Improve our performance in the recruitment of young FT undergraduates from LPN Q1 and Q2.  Improve our performance in the recruitment of students from NS-SEC 4-7.  Increase the volume of applicants as well as full-time entrants to HE from Partner Schools and Colleges and Kent and Medway Progression Federation (KMPF) (Aimhigher legacy) schools.  Undertake further analysis of our local state school intake to assess participation rates from selective and non-selective schools and the effect, if any, on subject choice and acceptance rates. This data will be used to inform the transitional targets for the embedding of Aimhigher activity and will effectively double, to 40, the number of Partner Schools of the University.  Increase mature participation from LPN Q1 and Q2 through the development of new access provision in Medway.  Work collaboratively with local authorities, schools and colleges to improve access to HE by care leavers. As outlined above our data illustrates that our performance for participation of underrepresented groups from low participation neighbourhoods against national and regional benchmarks is good. The introduction of the new low participation indicator for 2006-07 data makes it difficult to assess, on this measure, the impact of the introduction of variable fees. However, the external NS-SEC measure, where we have underperformed against local and national benchmarks and our internal monitoring of students from our Partner Schools, both illustrate a significant dip for 06-07 intake. Our understanding of this data suggests that it will be a challenging target to aim to stabilise participation of our widening participation cohort post-2012 whilst working to improve our more challenging NS-SEC indicator by 20153. Equally, our widening participation strategy has always actively addressed the selective school system that operates within Kent and our existing target schools a...
Outreach. Partner with healthcare Providers and other social service partners who provide screening for the presence of behavioral health conditions to facilitate access to appropriate Services.
Outreach. Company will solicit interest by Durham-based firms in the Project utilizing the following:
Outreach. The Contractor’s ICT will interact with Enrollees needing transition of care in order to assess the Enrollees’ service needs, identify Enrollees’ current Providers, and identify gaps in care. The ICT shall coordinate the provision of Medically Necessary Covered Services.
Outreach. Presentations of results at international conferences, publications in international journals, and explanation of one’s own scientific work to the general public (either in Germany or in the researcher’s home country). Participation in the IMPRS for Global Biogeochemical Cycles should be acknowledged in all outreach activities.
Outreach. Student Ambassadors, mentors and tutors The student ambassador, mentor and tutor training programme is monitored by individual workshop evaluation and yearly evaluation. In the final training session, a workshop led by a careers advisor encourages students to evaluate and reflect on their training, experiences and professional outreach practice to identify graduate-level transferable skills to help build confidence and raise aspiration as they enter the job market. Recent graduates are also invited to complete a questionnaire to evaluate the impact of training and employment in outreach roles on their employability. Targeting of activity From 2011/12 outreach officers will continue to work with individual teachers and tutors to evidence and evaluate targeting strategies. Outreach activity The activity itself will continue to be evaluated by participants through a questionnaire, and where it is part of a programme of learner progression framework, with teachers and tutors by interview, and sometimes through parental questionnaires, at the end of the academic year. Events and outreach programmes are also evaluated by student ambassadors, mentors and tutors through de-briefing sessions and focus groups. Depending on the nature of our relationship with the particular school or college, in the medium term we will evaluate change in aspirations and attitude to learning, behaviour and commitment to learning and progression rates of pupils. In those schools and colleges where the University has mature links, we will work with widening participation coordinators to develop a range of quantitative and qualitative data to measure the impact of outreach programmes. Where appropriate, impact and success will be evaluated at the learner level up to the point of progression to level 3 or higher education, but where an individual has progressed to Bath Spa University, it will be possible to carry out a more comprehensive and long-term evaluation at learner level. We will also monitor overall recruitment from other schools and colleges that we work with, including those regional colleges that deliver Access to Higher Education Diploma courses. Schools and Trust partnerships Overall school performance in key areas could be used in the long-term evaluation of formal academy and trust partnerships, but establishing a direct causal link between activity and outcomes would be difficult. The University will monitor the nature and volume of activity with partners and working with...
