The Go Higher West Yorkshire CPD programme is funded by the Uni Connect programme and offers a wide range of virtual opportunities for teachers, educators and advisors who support young people aged 11- 18.
Our sessions aim to increase understanding of post 16 & 18 progression routes into and through Higher Education, and provide access to key updates and understanding of changes within the Further and Higher Education sector. Alongside this, we offer the unique opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding of underrepresented groups.
