Good Practice Programme for staff working at our HE partners – NEW DATE!

Go Higher West Yorkshire has developed a new series of events targeted at HE staff working in our partner institutions.  These events will provide staff with the opportunity to experience the benefits of  collaboration by gaining insight into innovative thinking and projects across the region.  They will also offer staff the opportunity to share best practice and network with collaborative colleagues.

The first event, ‘Addressing Barriers to Student Success: A GHWY Good Practice Event’ will be focused upon the HEFCE Catalyst funded projects taking effect at the Universities of Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield, and will be an opportunity to garner new insight into developing and enabling student success in Higher Education.  This will be a morning session and is planned for 30th April 2018 at Leeds Beckett University (please note that this date has been rescheduled from 16th March).

This event is targeted at staff working in the following areas:

  • Teaching staff / student-facing academics (from all disciplines, but particularly those from subject areas our Catalyst projects are focused on, i.e. Life Sciences, Education and STEM)
  • Curriculum and content design staff (esp. those involved in inclusive curriculum design and resource development)
  • Study support staff (incl. personal tutors, faculty specific staff)
  • Health and wellbeing support staff (incl. disability support, mental health support)
  • Widening participation staff (esp. faculty specific e.g. Life Sciences, Education, STEM)
  • Staff in all roles with a particular interest in developing the success of under-represented students


This event is free and all places have been allocated to each of our partner HE institutions.  For more details and to book your place, please visit our Eventbrite page
