Event description

Description

Go Higher West Yorkshire (GHWY) is working with Leeds Community Foundation to provide funding to communities as part of a larger programme to increase the number of young people progressing into Higher Education from areas where progression rates are currently low.

GHWY is a consortium of 12 Higher Education partners (colleges and universities) which aim to raise awareness and understanding of Higher Education and help facilitate access to and preparation for studying. GHWY is currently delivering the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) in 27 ward areas across West Yorkshire.

As part of the programme, GHWY is working with Leeds Community Foundation to make £100,000 available to community groups to help more young people aged 13-19 progress into Higher Education from areas where rates of progression are currently low.

Higher Education means any courses at Level 4 or above. This is equivalent to the first year of a BA/BSc degree, a Level 4 or above apprenticeship, HNCs/HNDs and other courses at Level 4 or above. To put this into context - A Levels and Level 3 BTECS are Level 3 courses normally studied at 6th form or college. These courses could be being studied in-work, at any college higher education centres or at university i.e. this initiative doesn’t recruit to or promote one Higher Education destination or route over another.


If you are thinking of applying for the Fund and would like to learn more about the Go Higher West Yorkshire then please join us for this briefing. This will include a presentation explaining the grant programme, the application process, an overview of previously funded projects, a Q&A session, and networking opportunities.
