Learner Progression Programme

The Aimhigher London Learner Progression Programme is a series of collaborative conference days that are themed to look at:

  • Different stages of learning ( KS3, KS4 and post 16)
  • Aspirations and awareness of opportunity  (in HE, FE and apprenticeships)
  • The skills and experience that young people will need to transition to higher level learning and training.

Our programme has been developed by our partners for our partners. It is designed to complement existing careers opportunities delivered by schools colleges, training and HE providers and meets the Gatsby benchmarks highlighted in the National Careers Strategy.
