The Higher Education Progression Partnership (Hepp) works across South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire to encourage more children, young people and adults to consider higher education opportunities.
Hepp's Multiple Intervention Programme consists of three engagements per year and runs from Year 8 through to Year 10. Sessions take place in school and on university campus, and aim to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and confidence to make informed decisions about Higher Education progression.
Sessions within the programme have been developed to provide participants with opportunities to identify, utilise, develop and reflect on key transferrable skills, derived from the Skills Builder Universal Framework - Aiming High, Problem Solving, Speaking and Listening.
Through participating in activities and post-programme evaluation, learners reflect on their use and development of these skills and how they will transfer them to other areas of learning and life.
