Help your business to Go Higher: A guide to engaging with higher education providers in West Yorkshire

This brochure aims to demystify Higher Education (HE) for regional employers by providing information about how you can recruit a diverse workforce, build your business, access specialist knowledge, and contact details so you can get in touch with the right people to discuss opportunities.

Produced by Go Higher West Yorkshire (GHWY), the guide draws on our collective wealth of experience in business engagement across the region. With input from each of our 13 members, it focuses on three core strands that can benefit your business: new ideas, new skills, and new talent.

We know that HE can be complex, which is why we have provided a summary of education qualifications, including those before higher education. Our indicative employer engagement calendar shows when might be the best times for you to get involved.

We have included case studies in each core strand so you can see what other employers have done and how it has benefited them. There are plenty more examples on GHWY’s and our members’ websites, which also provide further information about how you can get involved in areas including
apprenticeships and live graduate projects.
