Go Further, Go Higher is a collaborative partnership between Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield, in association with HEPP to encourage young people who are in or leaving care, estranged from their families or have caring responsibilities to progress to higher education.
The CPD Conference is an ideal opportunity for professionals who work with vulnerable young people to learn more about the support available within higher education.The day will consist of key note speakers and a series of carousel workshops on topics such as pathways, finance and wellbeing support.
The conference will inform you about the work that happens at both Universities; the support offered for the young people you work with on their journey to and throughout their university experience. There will be the opportunity to hear from current university students who are care leavers and those from caring backgrounds, and to join us for a networking lunch to connect and share good practice.
The conference will take place on Friday 29th June at 9:00am-1:50pm with a networking lunch 1:50pm-3pm in the Owen Building, City Campus, Sheffield Hallam University.
