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.
Watch now: Go Higher West Yorkshire NCOP Summer School 2018
The ‘Class of 2024’ Summer School was collaboratively hosted by Go Higher West Yorkshire’s (GHWY) Higher Education partners from Tuesday 17th to Thursday 19th July 2018, and was attended by Year 10 students from 12 schools and colleges within West Yorkshire.
Designed to provide an immersive experience of Higher Education, participants were supported throughout by dedicated Student Ambassadors from across the GHWY partnership as well as core staff and academics.
The intensive and energetic nature of the residential encouraged participants to be ambitious about future plans. By the end of the 3-day programme, students had a good indication of the careers they would like to consider and the paths they could follow to achieve their ambitions.
