We are here to help students access and prepare for Higher Education in West Yorkshire!

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.
The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) will launch its new Business Start-Up programme on Wednesday, 3 November.
The event will feature contributions from Tracy Brabin, West Yorkshire Mayor; Sir Roger Marsh, Chair of the LEP and NP11; and Kamran Rashid, LEP Board Member and CEO of Impact Hub Bradford.
The programme aims to nurture entrepreneurial talent within schools; to promote business start-up to underrepresented groups; and help to maximise the success of new enterprises. Book your place at the virtual launch.
The LEP will be working with GHWY to coordinate an opportunity for HE providers to meet with the organisation leading on the pre-start up strand. This will be an opportunity to explore how this may complement support offered by providers and benefit regional students and graduates.
