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.
Black History Month takes place in October and Go Higher West Yorkshire is proud to support this celebration of Black achievements in British society.
The annual event originated in the United States in the 1920s and nearly 100 years later it is marked worldwide. It was first held in the UK in 1987 and has become a time for people to celebrate Black contributions to British society and to foster a greater understanding of Black history.
We have created a book of case studies that highlight the achievements of Black people in a wide range of sectors, whose careers have benefited from progressing into higher education.
We firmly believe that higher education in all its forms should be open to everyone who can benefit, regardless of background. Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups are under-represented in higher education and our case studies seek to reach and inspire Black young people to consider higher education.
