We are here to help students access and prepare for Higher Education in West Yorkshire.
Here you’ll find events such as open days, help choosing a course, and tips on application writing. We also provide advice on student finance, living away from home and insight into what to expect from Higher Education.

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.
HEART has been delighted to support the National Network for the Education of Care Leavers since it formed at around the same time that HEART was cutting it’s teeth.
In a very short period of time, this voluntarily organised network of education providers across England has become the ‘go to’ organisation to support those involved in supporting young people in or leaving care to progress through their education. This has culminated in the NNECL receiving support from the Higher Education Funding Council for England to become a national ‘Single Point of Contact’ and as a result the NNECL now has a NEW Website offering a range of activities, resources, news and information relevant for young people in/leaving care; local authorities; virtual school head teachers, schools, colleges and universities.
We welcome this additional resource and provide support to the NNECL in promoting stronger pathways in learning for care experienced young people.
