Teacher and advisor support
Hello Future support teachers and advisors in a number of different ways. We provide detail of Higher Education outreach activity available in Cumbria in one location to support you in accessing opportunities for your learners. By working with you and our Higher Education partners we can ensure that HE outreach offered meet your needs as a teacher and advisor and the needs of your specific learners.
This work is supported by the development of an Outreach Hub as part of phase two of the Cumbria Collaborative Outreach programme
As part of the second phase of the Cumbria Collaborative Outreach Programme (which commenced in August 2019) Hello Future has developed an Outreach Hub to support all Cumbrian schools and colleges in accessing Higher Education Outreach Activity available in the county, and provide a platform for wider collaboration between Higher Education Providers (HEPs).
The Outreach Hubs represent the Office for Students commitment to;
“Supporting collaboration in the longer term by funding sustainable local partnerships with cross- England coverage to help schools and colleges access the higher education outreach they need and provide a platform for wider collaboration, including with regard to joined up careers advice.”
Full guidance available of the Office for student’s website www.officeforstudents.org.uk.
The outreach hub has three distinct elements of focus;
Learner Need Progression Plan
We deliver a sustained and intensive programme of activities for young people in years 9 – 13 which has been built upon feedback from young people, local teachers and advisors and our range of partners. This feedback highlighted the importance of developing confidence, self-esteem, resilience, determination and independence in young people.
The Hello Future programme is underpinned by our Evaluation Framework as well as the Cumbria LEP skills plan, OFSTED and CEIAG guidance, all of which we aim to support throughout the delivery of activities.
Opportunities created to  provoke interest,  produce encounters,  begin engagement,  generate excitement and  raise aspiration.
2. Understand and Upskill
Opportunities crated for capability building in  communication,  confidence and  resilience.
3. Practical Support & Guidance
Provision of resources and information (applying to university and apprenticeships, wider lifestyle, citizenship and student voice).
Creation of opportunities to experience H.E. learning and H.E. environments. For example interactions with F.E., H.E., alumni and visits.
We have compiled and created a number of useful resources, workbooks and more to help support teachers.
