Aspire to HE
Aspire to HE (higher education) is a partnership of schools and colleges, led by the University of Wolverhampton and part of the Uni Connect programme funded by the Office for Students. The main aim of the partnership is to support the government’s goal to increase the number of young people from less advantaged backgrounds entering higher education.
To support students to progress to higher education, the Walsall College Aspire team designs and delivers a programme of informative and engaging outreach activities including, one to one advice sessions, university campus visits, inspirational employer talks/visits and cultural capital day trips. We want every young person we work with to be in a position to make an informed and ambitious decision about progressing to higher education.
