The role of teachers, senior leadership teams and advisors is crucial in supporting students and potential students to access Higher Education. Whether supporting someone by raising attainment, helping them to make informed choices, or by providing practical information and advice, at Go Higher West Yorkshire we have resources which can help.
The information and links below have been compiled to assist you to help support learners’ attainment and aspirations, inform their choices about courses and careers, and guide them through the application process on their journey to Higher Education. This includes the OfS Uni Connect Programme Outreach Hub – helping schools and colleges access the higher education outreach they need.
The journey started in schools, colleges and universities, doesn’t end at graduation.
Exposure to the world of work is key to developing employability skills and securing a job.
That’s why we work collaboratively with employers and industry experts, supporting our partners to equip their students for the changing economy.
At Go Higher West Yorkshire we take pride in the wide range of activities and projects we deliver in schools, colleges and communities across West Yorkshire, engaging thousands of young people, and supporting them on their journey into higher education.
The knowledge and insights we gain from working with young people are fed right back into our programme, ensuring that learners’ needs are met, and that our activities are always informed by research.
