Next Steps South West (NSSW) is a collaborative project, funded by UniConnect, across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset and comprises 14 Higher Education Institution partners.

The project's objective is to engage with young people and adults from identified target postcodes where research indicates that there are high percentages of young people with the ability to progress into higher education, but low numbers of people taking up the opportunity.
