Care Experienced Young People - Aimhigher West Midlands

Opportunities for Care Experienced young people

H.E. 4 Me

Aimhigher has created an exciting new free programme of events for young people with experience of being in care to give them the chance to learn more about higher education. H.E. 4 Me is a programme which aims to inspire and inform young people of the opportunities available at higher education, while highlighting the support available for those with care experience.

The first H.E. 4 Me event invites care experienced Year 11s in the West Midlands to the University of Birmingham on Thursday 8 December 2022. We invite Year 11s to join us on campus to gain insight into university, explaining how this can be an option for their future should they decide this is right for them. The event will provide tips on how to manage stress and how to revise effectively in preparation for their upcoming GCSEs. Young people will also have the chance to speak to current university students and explore the University of Birmingham campus, as well as hearing from a motivational speaker.

There is no cost to this event and lunch will be provided for all attendees. All young people will need to be accompanied by a school staff member.
