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.
What’s was HE Week?
In West Yorkshire we’re really lucky – we have 13 Higher Education (HE) institutions right on our doorstep. These include three specialists (a college, a university, and a conservatoire), three University Centres, and a Russell Group university, along with six other top places you can study!
There really is something for everyone, but we understand it can be difficult to know where to start.
HE was Week all about showing you what’s on offer and giving you tips on making decisions, applying to HE, and what to expect throughout the process.
We have live events that you can access, blogs on different subjects, and a virtual HE Fair where you can learn about all the institutions in West Yorkshire.
Hear from students and lecturers, learn about specific subjects, and find out about student life, student finance and how to use UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service).
