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.
Don’t think that Higher Education is for you? Read our Myth Buster guide to clear up any misconceptions about further study.
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.
Amazing Apprenticeships has launched a new guide for care experienced young people to coincide with National Care Leavers Week (25-31 October 2021).
The free document walks through how apprenticeships are delivered, the level of qualifications available, how to look for an apprenticeship opportunity, careers support, points of contact, and links to external resources. This is complemented with further information on financial considerations including financial support available to care leavers and benefits that can be maintained whilst completing an apprenticeship.
The guide has been produced through a partnership between Amazing Apprenticeships, Hertfordshire County Council and ELSA Next Generation.
