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.
Go Higher West Yorkshire recognises that this is a difficult time for young people, particularly care leavers and estranged students. We have therefore produced a document that signposts those studying without a family network to appropriate guidance and other resources based on mental health / wellbeing difficulties they may experience during lockdown.
The resource includes links to help young people cope with isolation, manage stress and anxiety, and financial concerns. It also signposts to useful contacts for getting help with mental health difficulties.
