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 a delivery partner for Let’s Talk Real Skills, a West Yorkshire region–wide programme led by the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges (WYCC) and funded by the European Social Fund. It aims to improve the regional skills and training system.
Sector specific Collaborative Skills Partnerships have been established to bring together skills and training providers (FE, HE and private providers) and businesses to explore skills needs and shortages, place employers at the heart of curriculum design and improve access to provision.
GHWY will be facilitating the participation of member institutions, broadening SME engagement and working with WYCC and HE providers to initiate pilot projects that create innovative solutions and skills pathways and contribute to greater regional economic resilience.
