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 has made an excellent start to securing additional funding with a successful bid to AoC/BIS.
The funding, which was confirmed in May, is for a collaborative pilot project, focusing on increasing credit accumulation and transfer opportunities supporting progression from across the adult skills, further and higher education sectors.
Focusing on the need for leadership and management skills to support economic growth in the region, HEART will work in collaboration with ILM and CMI to build on the ILM progression agreement developed by WYLLN, add the CMI awards to this and work towards clear and robust credit transfer arrangements.
A detailed project plan will be submitted by 8 June, with project activity commencing July 2012. For more information about this project contact Ian McGregor Brown.
