Care to Go Higher CPD programme opens for registration nation-wide 

Registration has now opened for Go Higher West Yorkshire’s (GHWY) innovative Care to Go Higher training programme. Aimed at the key influencers of care-experienced young people, it empowers them to support students to make informed decisions about Higher Education (HE). 

Due to growing demand, the free programme is being offered nation-wide for the first time. It is open to anyone who supports care-experienced young people, including foster carers, children’s home workers and personal advisors. 

The CPD will run between June and July 2023, and consists of six two-hour sessions delivered by Dominic House (GHWY’s Care to Go Higher Delivery Officer). There will also be guest speakers providing their own personal or expert knowledge on the subject matter. Speakers on previous programme iterations have included outreach staff, care-experienced students, and admissions staff. 

The programme has been fully evaluated to measure its effectiveness at better equipping participants to support their young people. It has had measurable success in terms of increase in knowledge on various subject matters. Read the evaluation report from our 2022 programme.

A previous participant said: “The programme has been very helpful and insightful. I have learned about numerous new resources and gained a better understanding of the support that is available for care leavers wishing to enter Higher Education.” 

Register your interest in the programme.
