For teachers and advisers
How HEPP can support you
HEPP activities in schools and colleges
Our team of recent graduates can deliver free, impartial, engaging sessions to your students to support you in preparing students for progression. We have a range of presentations and interactive activities on student finance and higher education in general.
The world of higher education is ever-changing, and keeping up to date is quite a task. HEPP is pleased to offer updates and training completely free of charge.
We run HEPP conferences on current issues in higher education twice a year which are free to teachers and advisers. We can also offer free bespoke professional development and training tailored for your organisation for staff who support learner progression to higher education.
Free materials for you
We have a range of resources both for building your own knowledge and for use with your students.
These can be downloaded below, and include
- general advice for students on higher education
- advice for students interested in specific careers (currently medicine, dentistry and veterinary science)
- advice for tutors writing UCAS references - including subject specific advice, and a suggested form for collecting input from colleagues
- tools for use with students
Websites we have developed
Our student finance website is www.yesyoucango.org
This addresses many concerns of students and parents such as
- why go to uni?
- what do I need to pay for?
- let's talk money (what is available)
- managing a budget
- how does payback work?
- living at home
