UCAS’ Outreach Connection Service is for providers and third-party providers to showcase their opportunities and be the go-to, single source of truth place for UK teachers and advisers offering an efficient and timesaving online tool for them to support disadvantaged and underrepresented students to higher education.
All UCAS registered centres in the UK will have automatic access via the UCAS adviser portal where they manage their students research and applications.
The Outreach Connection Service will catalogue and promote outreach and engagement activities across the UK, presenting opportunities based upon a range of personal characteristics and postcode areas. Initially, this new tool will be made available to schools and colleges, acting as a low burden route to access outreach opportunities and identify cold spots of intervention. All UCAS registered centres in the UK will have automatic access via the UCAS Adviser Portal where they manage their students research and applications.
Register your interest now to be part of the service as an outreach provider. By completing this form, we will start the process to onboard you as an outreach provider. There will be a process of validation and onboarding, during which you will receive an email to review 'My Third Party UCAS business partner code of conduct'. You will then receive access to upload your opportunities before the launch to teachers and advisers in autumn 2023.
