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 (GHWY) is pleased to welcome Tahera Mayat at its new Collaborative Outreach Officer.
She has most recently worked as an Education Outreach Fellow at the University of Leeds and is currently completing her PhD study.
She has spent almost a decade in Higher Education in some capacity as a student and/or employee so never really left a university environment!
Outside of work, she is a primary school governor and junior Parkrun volunteer.
She is committed to helping young people realise their potential and raise their confidence whether through education or other activities.
She is currently familiarising herself with the work of GHWY and has attended useful meetings with some colleagues. She looks forward to getting to know stakeholders better and working in such a passionate and welcoming team to achieve shared objectives.
