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.
We are delighted to be supporting a CATS Colloquium being held by Bradford College on 26 March 2013.
CATS is a system whereby prior certificated learning can receive ‘credit’ toward other qualifications, thereby making progression to and completion of further qualifications simpler and quicker.
The CATS system has existed for many years but has been rather hidden from public view and not utilised as fully as perhaps it should be. As a result of funding from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) the HEART partnership has been working with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) to clarify and make transparent credit transfer from their qualifications into a range of foundation degrees, degrees and masters programmes at HEART partners.
We now wish to explore how the learning from this project can support wider dialogue between academics, awarding bodies and business in order to broaden credit transfer into other subject disciplines. Bradford College will lead the colloquium with a broad aim to make CATS a reality rather than a concept.
We would be delighted to have people attending from as wide a range of backgrounds and interest as possible with a view to really developing strong dialogue and relationships for making CATS live in West Yorkshire. To attend please register HERE.
