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 is managing one of seven projects funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills aimed at developing stronger progression routes with accompanying transfer of credit from the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) to the Higher Education Qualification Framework (HEQF).
All seven projects are progressing and details of the latest situation can be located on the Credit Accumulation and Transfer Pilot Projects website.
HEART are working collaboratively with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) with the aim of simplifying the progression from their awards onto a range of Foundation Degrees, BA Honours and Masters programmes across most of our partners. Our aim is to publish a searchable database of the progression and credit transfer options on the website in late spring 2013.
