Aimhigher recognises the importance that staff play in supporting students to progress appropriately to the next level and in particular those students with higher levels of need.
We have established three working groups for staff working with specific target groups:
More able students from disadvantaged backgrounds
This group of representatives from schools, colleges, 6th forms and selective higher education institutions works together to support high achieving students to be able to make applications to highly selective institutions.
A key output from this working group is the development of the Aimhigher Great Debate which will be piloted in the 2018/19 academic year.
