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 pleased to welcome Dominic House as its new Care to Go Higher Delivery Officer.
He has previously worked as a Finance Assistant and Admissions Enquiries Assistant at the University of Leeds.
Handling a large variety of queries and helping people with many topics – such as applications, financial support, and routes to entry – made it clear he enjoyed helping potential applicants.
Having known people who worked for charities, including one who helped disadvantaged applicants apply to university, he gradually learned more about the impact it can have and grew interested in the area of work.
He said: “I am looking forward to turning my hand to a new role and am keen to help GHWY make a difference to disadvantaged applicants.”
