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, 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.
In the first gathering of the Ambassadors we were treated to some strong networking, creation of ideas, a good meal and a talk by Mark Robson, UKTI Yorkshire & Humber Director. Our attendant partner representatives also found the opportunity to engage with the Ambassadors most helpful gaining first hand understanding of their input into the Higher Level Skills agenda and in return Ambassadors and other attendant businesses learning more about the wide range of business support available from our partners.
A number of initiatives are being followed up as a result and we hope to bring Ambassadors together again in the very near future to throw around ideas for making more impact and getting more businesses to engage in skilling up employees to further boost the economy.
