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.
Care Experienced History Month takes place every April and helps to promote recognition of the care experienced background of historical figures.
To support this initiative Go Higher West Yorkshire will tweet throughout the month about inspirational people of historical significance. They will come from varying fields and the messages will highlight the type of care they experienced, such as kinship or foster care.
The aim of this is to provide insight into the different types of care while still celebrating the successes of those involved. While each of the spotlighted individuals have well known achievements, their origins may be less widely recognised.
Keep an eye out for a brief discussion of each person’s care experience, starting with John Lennon’s time in kinship care, by following @GoHigherWY on Twitter.
