Aspire to HE Mentoring Programme – short deadline
Aspire to HE Mentoring Programme
University of Wolverhampton
Aspire to HE’ is a partner-based consortium which will deliver sustained, progressive, intensive outreach activity to targeted cohorts of learners (years 9 to 13) in identified wards to increase the numbers of students from disadvantaged backgrounds entering higher education. The measure of success is the progression of young people onto courses of prescribed higher education.
The key aim is to increase the rate of young participation in HE in the target wards: ‘young participation’ is defined as the proportion of the cohort that enters HE at both 18 and 19 years of age. The successful contractor would be required to develop and carry out a mentoring program for students in years 12 and 13 who are academically on track to progress to Higher Education, but may have no family history of University and/or are financially disadvantaged.
The aim is to raise aspirations and knowledge of Higher Education. Through an effective and supportive one to one relationship we hope to support informed ambitious decision making with regard to potential progression to Higher Education.
