Care to Go Higher – A Programme for Care Professionals

Back to Care to Go Higher



There will be six taught sessions and it is expected that learners will complete ‘reflective journals’ in between these sessions.

All professionals on the course will be matched with a named higher education link (‘buddy’) who can answer any questions between sessions.

Session 1: Introduction to the programme and Go Higher West Yorkshire
Session 2: Raising Aspirations & Supporting Decisions
Session 3: Benefits of Higher Education
Session 4: Routes into Further Education and Higher Education
Session 5: Support Available for Care Leavers
Session 6: Conclusions, Reflections and Next Steps


The sessions will also include the following experiences:
  • A Campus Tour
  • Meet the Support Services
  • Meet a named Care Leaver contact
  • Hear from a care experienced student
  • Visit an Academic department
  • Meet admissions staff
  • Graduation
We would love to see you sign up if you are working as a:

 
  • Foster carer
  • Residential children's home worker
  • Personal Adviser
 

Ideally you will also:

 
  • Be currently or frequently supporting looked after young people aged 14+
  • Have little or no personal experience of higher education
 

If this sounds like you then we would love for you to join us on a journey to discover higher education and uncover the potential of care leavers.
