is the name we will now be using to “brand” all careers, higher education, or aspiration-raising event.
We are working closely in partnership with HeppSY+, an impartial organisation funded by the Office for Students (OfS) to support young people most at risk of missing out on higher education. It stands for Higher Education Progression Partnership South Yorkshire Plus.
HeppSY+ builds on the work of the existing Higher Education Progression Partnership (Hepp) involving Sheffield Hallam University, the University of Sheffield and the South Yorkshire colleges of further education.
Their remit is to work with young people from Year 9 who live in 45 target wards. The evidence shows that higher education participation of young people in these areas is both low and much lower than expected based on GCSE-level attainment.
We are also working very closely with Careers Inc. who work in partnership with Outwood Grange Academies Trust, and advise students on which path to take to reach their desired career. More information on them can be found here.
