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.
GHWY delivered an information session about the apprenticeship Levy Transfer Service to members on 21 January 2021.
The service improves access to funding for smaller businesses to support them with apprenticeships. Larger levy paying companies can opt to transfer surplus levy contributions to smaller businesses in a selected region or sector. This is facilitated by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s Levy Transfer Service and local council equivalent services.
Small or medium sized businesses can benefit from fully funded apprenticeships including higher and degree apprenticeships. Regional HE apprenticeship providers are encouraged to explore how this could expand their apprenticeship offer to small and medium sized employers.
