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 will be at the Aoc HE in FE conference on Wednesday 6 March 2013 in order to talk to a poster designed to show the progress made in relation to the CATS Pilot Project that we are working on as a partnership. Linking London will be providing a workshop in relation to their project which is very similar to that being carried out by HEART. Representatives will be present from all seven projects and details of these can be located on the CATS Pilot Project website.
HEART are making good progress with a number of partners already presenting mapping and credit transfer proposals from Chartered Management Institute and Institute of Leadership & Management qualifications into a range of foundation degrees, degrees and masters programmes. We are working on developing the best possible solution to presenting this information in order to simplify the landscape for learners to progress. We are aiming to have the information presented on the website in the near future so please check back regularly or if you wish to be notified when information goes live do please drop us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
