“This was an excellent chance for us to learn more about university, especially from students themselves. Before I went on the trip I was not sure about going to university but now I can’t wait to pass my GCSE’s and get there.”

“Students are acutely aware that Higher Education is required to achieve future success in the workplace. Without doubt the opportunity to visit universities as part of Aimhigher schemes has developed this awareness.”

Aimhigher provides discrete activities as well as progressive programmes to target groups of learners who are under-represented in HE, such as disabled students and LAC. We work with these learners and key adults around them to understand the benefits of University and raise awareness of the generic and specific support available to them.



‘Weathering the storm for the learner’ Identifying a network of key people and their role in supporting the learner

On Monday 17th October, Aimhigher London South held a collaborative forum at London South Bank University. The aim of the event was to illustrate ways in which NNCO funding has enabled us to better understand what and how we communicate with key adults supporting the learner; how we build capacity through sharing experiences and developing resources to meet the needs of both.

Representatives from schools, universities and local authorities attended the conference and feedback has been very positive.

‘Brilliant, more like this, fab!’, Virtual School

‘It was really useful to meet other people involved in progression activities and share effective practice’ Independent Adviser

‘As someone new to WP this was hugely useful. I am really excited about the new disability website/tool’ University
