North East Raising Aspiration Partnership website

A Powerful Partnership

The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership (led by Newcastle University) is a group of universities working together to support young people to think about their futures and how higher education can help them reach their goals.

Fat Heads worked closely with NERAP to design and develop a brand new website to be used by teachers, students and parents looking for information and guidance about higher education opportunities.

The solution was to create a platform that showcased educational events & activities across the region for visitors to register interest via a booking form. Another important feature involved integrating a secure login area for users to manage their account and bookings.

Site Structure

The new site was to be aimed at 3 different user groups which presented a couple of challenges into how all the content was divided up and organised.

We worked closely with NERAP to restructure the navigation and site map, ensuring it was straightforward for each user to find the information relevant to their visit.

Outreach Activities & Events

The NERAP platform highlights a wide range of events and activities across the region where advice and guidance are given to young people. It was important that the site promoted both of these but also indicated a visual difference between an event and an outreach activity.

Using alternate colours from the brand palette we were able to colour code backgrounds and icons throughout each section to ensure a clear distinction for the user.

Member Account Area

We integrated an area for both teachers and students to log in and securely manage their accounts.

This section allows users to view booking history, administrate personal information and offers access to exclusive content such as downloadable resources and additional information about NERAP programmes.

Fat Heads have recently created our new Partnership website, and it's everything we had asked for and more. Nothing was too much trouble for Sean and Rick, and they both went above and beyond the brief in recommending ideas. We look forward to working with you for years to come.
