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.
The ethos of Go Higher West Yorkshire is around ensuring that no one’s background should limit their ability to participate in Higher Education, along with ensuring that people are equipped to make an informed choice about their futures.
Teachers, advisers, parents and carers play a crucial role in supporting students’ decision-making about their next steps and future career. The materials in this pack have been designed to enable you and others to inform young people about the choices and options they have, covering the routes into and how to apply for Higher Education in all its forms, including higher level and degree apprenticeships.
