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.
Supported by HEART, the Theatre of Debate performed their thought-provoking play, ‘People are Messy’, to students across the region, at seven West Yorkshire schools during March 2016. A public performance of the play was also hosted by the University of Leeds.
‘People are Messy’ play targets pupils aged 13 + and engages its audiences in an informed debate around PPI (patient and public involvement) and the social and ethical issues that it raises. The Theatre of Debate® programme is designed for a whole year group and consists of a stimulating performance and a thought-provoking, facilitated audience debate, enhanced by electronic voting technology. In addition, the project is supported by preparatory worksheets and follow up resources, available online.
‘People are Messy’ has been developed in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), a partnership of OUH NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Oxford, as a Theatre production designed to support the achievement of attainment targets outlined in Key Stages 4 in Science, English, Drama, ICT, PSHE and RS.
