Care to Go Higher
As a partnership of West Yorkshire higher education providers, we have a shared responsibility to help care leavers reach their potential through economic and educational progress. To address the challenges young people face when leaving the care system, we’ve introduced our pilot Care to Go Higher programme. Care professionals will be embedded in a higher education environment to garner first-hand perspectives and experiences, which they can share with those for whom they are providing care.
Registration is now live
We are now recruiting with sessions throughout June and July 2023. Please sign up below.
