We are here to help students access and prepare for Higher Education in West Yorkshire.
Here you’ll find events such as open days, help choosing a course, and tips on application writing. We also provide advice on student finance, living away from home and insight into what to expect from Higher Education.
Don’t think that Higher Education is for you? Read our Myth Buster guide to clear up any misconceptions about further study.
The role of teachers, advisors, parents, carers and guardians 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 guidance, Go Higher West Yorkshire can help.
We’ve compiled a list of resources, including lesson plans, videos, links to useful websites, quizzes and other activities, to help support learners’ attainment and aspirations, inform their choices about courses and careers, and to guide them through the application process and other practical issues on their journey to Higher Education.
If you would like to arrange a visit to your school, or require information about an event, contact the Go Higher West Yorkshire team.
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.
HEART was established to support collaborative approaches to support access to higher education from under represented groups and to work with Leeds City Region to support their work in relation to realising a high skill economy that is good for business, jobs, the regional economy and individuals.
To achieve this requires adults to engage in lifelong learning, upskilling and continuous development. Once a year, a national Adult Learners’ Week takes place, this year from 18-24 May. HEART are sponsoring an Adult Learner Award to be presented at a celebration event in Forster’s Bistro in Bradford whilst many of our partners are putting on special activities. A summary list of the activities can be found by clicking HERE.
If you are a business seeking opportunities to engage with a college or university to support the development of higher level skills in your workforce we would be delighted to here from you and support making the right connections.
