Who's it for?
This network is primarily aimed at public engagement professionals (or PEPs) working in professional services roles in higher education institutions (HEIs) or research institutes across the UK. Whether public engagement is formally part of their job description or not, this group face a series of common and often unique challenges in working to support or coordinate high-quality public engagement within UK higher education institutions or research institutes.
We also welcome those working in similar roles in the sector, or those working with HEIs, research institutes or funders to coordinate and support public engagement.
We do also welcome members from outside the UK, but the majority of our membership is UK-based and therefore the content of events/discussions reflects this.
What does membership involve?
Annual Calendar of events - these are held online. Events provide a mix of formal Continuing Professional Development, structured networking and skills sharing, as well as a chance to hear from NCCPE and other sector experts about the latest developments.
