This site has been extensively updated (2012) to take into account of the many changes to funding, the careers service and higher-level courses. It is maintained and updated by the Higher Education Progression Partnership (HEPP Sheffield City Region).
The HEPP is a partnership supported by the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and other partners across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, Chesterfield, Bolsover, Bassetlaw and Derbyshire Dales who are committed to widening participation and progression to Higher Education.
This website has evolved from a number of previous websites. These were the Apprenticesgohigher website originally funded by the Aimhigher Yorkshire and Humber Regional Partnership, and a development of two previous Aimhigher South Yorkshire - funded sites.
The site contains information and case studies relating to both Apprenticeships and the opportunities for apprentices to progress to higher education. To support this, there is a fully searchable database of the higher-level courses that apprentices and vocational learners can access across the Sheffield City Region.
The co-authors are David Fisher, DAVICI Consulting and David Berry, Partnership Co-ordinator for the HEPP. The website was produced by Pixel Play.
