Why Higher Education?
Why should you take the Higher Education route?
The workbook will help provide learners with a range of resources to help them better understand themselves, their future options and information and techniques to help them gain skills.
Learners can work through the booklet at their own pace, or the shorter sections could be delivered as lessons in school with a teacher or by Study Higher.
There are three sections of the interactive and engaging workbook aimed at helping learners discover and learn as they work through the various activities:
For students who would like to download the workbook, you will need to complete a few questions via the form below, first. A link for the workbook will be available after you submit the form.
For all teachers/advisors, you can instruct a class of students to download the booklet from the link above so that students can work through it at their/your pace, saving as they proceed. You also request an un-editable copy for your own reference by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
For those teachers in eligible schools (Study Higher tiers 1 and 2) we are able to provide printed versions for any number of students. These can be requested by emailing: email@example.com
Yes this is possible. For each school, where students download the workbook, we maintain a spreadsheet of student names and the download date. This will only be accessible by our team and a designated school contact – this is generally the careers lead or head of sixth form but it can be someone else specified by the school if you let us know. The spreadsheet will be updated at the end of each month and we hope this will help you to then check in with students as to their progress and ask us for support as and when required.
Students can work through the workbook at their own pace, or the shorter sections could be delivered as lessons in school with a teacher or by Study Higher. Please talk to us about the delivery by our team.
This workbook could be used in any manner suitable to the school but some suggestions are: over a number of personal development lessons; in tutor sessions e.g. registration or, as individual homework tasks that could then be looked at together during the sessions mentioned above.
This really depends on the approach of the student and how much time they want to spend researching many of the links found in the workbook. Some of the tasks could take just 10 minutes while others may take half an hour.
We are developing a powerpoint with a pre-recorded voiceover to allow a teacher to use this with a class, pausing at appropriate points to allow task time.
As soon as this is available we will provide a link on the webpage.
Absolutely – you know your students best so please use it with students across the key stages.
On the back page of the workbook there is a QR code and/or a link to evaluation questions. If you could ask your students to complete the evaluation via either of these that would be great.
Yes – there are a few pages which don’t require internet access but many of the tasks do relate to partner websites.
If this causes an issue then a suggestion might be that the teacher, or a student for the class, searches for the information on the teachers computer and projects it to the whole class using a whiteboard.
Yes please contact your Study Higher link or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a pdf version.
When individual students make a request to download the workbook, via the web page, they will be asked to answer a few questions prior to getting the workbook download link. If your students are working with a physical copy of the workbook we ask that students complete these questions via the link(s) provided on the back page.
We are collecting data to use in our monitoring – we need to track who we’re working with to ensure the right students are accessing our interventions and to justify our funding to the Office for Students. To do this, we enter student data into our student database (HEAT) which allows us to track students as they progress through school to university, and to see which outreach activities they’ve taken part in, in order to try and gauge the impact of our work. We don’t use this data for any marketing purposes, and we’re not collecting any direct contact information.
