Go Higher West Yorkshire: Attainment Raising Dissemination Event

Event information

Date: 4 October 2023

Time: 2.30- 4.30pm

Venue: Online

City: Bradford , Halifax , Huddersfield , Leeds , Wakefield


The academic year 2022- 2023 saw the introduction of attainment raising as a key focus for the Uni Connect programme. Following a gap analysis with schools, GHWY developed a coherent, evidence based and strategic approach to the delivery of attainment raising. Our programme aims to improve the academic attainment and progress of year 8-10 pupils that are underrepresented in higher education by working on their metacognitive skills.

The Uni Connect programme working across West Yorkshire has piloted an attainment raising programme in five schools across the academic year 2022-23, and the team are excited to share their overview of the programme as well as the key outcomes, as part of our Dissemination event on 4th October 2023.

We welcome teachers, trainee teachers and practitioners working with young people aged 12-16 who wish to develop their knowledge around metacognition and its links with attainment raising, as well as find out more about our development of the programme and key outcomes.
