We are delighted to announce that KMPF's External Projects and Support Services Manager, Vanessa Chapman has been voted onto the National Education Opportunities Network (NEON) Executive Committee.
NEON was founded in early 2012 as the professional organisation to support those involved in widening access to higher education and social mobility. At the heart of NEON is a cross-sector approach bringing together HE institutions, schools, colleges, the voluntary sector, professional bodies and employers.
NEON is driven forward by the commitment of its Executive Committee. The Committee includes those from HE, the voluntary sector and the school/college sectors. The Committee has an advisory function supporting the Executive Team based at London Higher in delivering the work of NEON.
KMPF's Director Dr Felicity Dunworth is stepping down from the committee this year and is happy to pass the torch to Vanessa
Vanessa has also joined the National Strategy Group for National Network for the Education of Care Leavers (NNECL).
NNECL aims to transform the progression of young people in or leaving care into and through further and higher education, by championing the continuous improvement of local practice, multi-agency partnerships and national collaboration.
