Teachers, advisors & carers
Helping you help people into Higher Education
We have all the practical advice, guidance and resources you need to help you help young people get on the path to attaining a higher education place. The information and links found here will enlighten students and learners on the ins and outs of higher education, inform their choices about courses and careers, and guide them through the application process. This includes the OfS Uni Connect Programme – helping schools and colleges access the higher education outreach they need.

These multimedia resources will help you engender in young people a better understanding of employability, including how to maximise it, the requisite skills, and how to approach it with pride and confidence.
