Welcome to the Centre for Student and Community Engagement (CenSCE) – a department dedicated to connecting and enabling society and NTU to flourish. With expertise in using data, research and pedagogy to advance Nottingham Trent University’s widening participation and social mobility agendas, CenSCE has earned a national reputation for innovation and quality.
Disrupt the Narrative
We’re all held back by stagnant social mobility. Watch Disrupt the Narrative to find out what we do and why we do it for communities, individuals and society.
We facilitate evidence-based programmes that raise attainment and help students develop characteristics, social and cultural capital required to access and succeed at university and beyond. The team delivers more than 700 activities each year, places 300 NTU undergraduates in local schools, works with over 30,000 pupils and matches more than 1,000 volunteers to a range of community projects.
University may seem a long way off but it’s never too soon to start thinking about what you might want to do in the future. Have a look at the different programmes we offer or ask you teacher to find out more.
Parents and carers
We recognise that parents and carers play a vital role supporting young people to make informed decisions about their future. We offer a comprehensive range of programmes, both in school and on campus, to support them with their studies and empower them to succeed.
Here at NTU we are committed to improving outcomes for you, our staff and students, local communities and society as a whole. We work collaboratively with many community groups, charities and other not-for-profit organisations, sharing resources and expertise to make a positive difference.
Opportunities for Staff
There are many ways for NTU staff members to get involved. From opportunities for you to host work placements to opportunities for your students to boost their CVs and enhance their university experience.
