Aim Higher West Midlands | Social mobility | Widening participation

Teachers & advisors

Aimhigher partners across the West Midlands offer a wide range of outreach activities to students and staff in schools and colleges in the region. Our aim is to have a positive impact on the aspiration, motivation and attainment of the young people we work with, giving them opportunities to experience higher education at first hand so that they can make informed decisions about their future.

We bring information on the region's higher education outreach into one place, and act as a single point of contact to help you make the most of the support available. This includes a wide range of activities and resources for students, teachers, careers advisers, parents and carers.

  • Move on up:  Activities and resources for Primary pupils in Years 5 and 6
  • Explore your future: Activities and resources for students in key Stages 3 and 4
  • Make your move: Activities and resources for post-16 and adult learners
  • Support for success: CPD activities and resources for teachers, advisers and information for parents / carers.

Together these activity strands form a progressive and integrated programme for disadvantaged students and the people who advise and support them. 

In addition, Aimhigher’s partner universities work together to offer the UniFest Summer School programme and Mentoring Scheme to over 50 regional schools and colleges each year.
