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.


In line with Government advice, most university buildings at NTU are now closed. However, CenSCE remains open with all staff working from home, who can be contacted as usual. We are committed to continuing to support our stakeholders in different ways and we’re working with our partners to ensure we provide the best support we can and deliver it in the right way. We welcome your suggestions, requests and/or your requirements as and when they emerge; and we will include these in our consultation with colleagues across the University and relevant external partners. Our continued aim through this difficult period, is to keep you informed, connected and supported. For any queries, please contact us at

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.
