CPD

Go Higher aims to offer a range of opportunities to upskill and build confidence for staff who support young people with their progression. Our sessions are open to all teachers and advisors who work with and support young people across secondary schools and FE colleges, as well as additional careers provisions and other support services.

Our opportunities align with the academic year, covering topic areas such as reviewing personal statements and preparing students for admissions interviews, to equipping our attendees with current knowledge on apprenticeships, clearing and student finance. Alongside that we offer sessions which focus on personal and professional development, such as mentoring skills and presentation skills.

The majority of our sessions are virtual, and you can view upcoming sessions and register at the below links.
