Teacher and advisor support

Hello Future is a partnership of universities, colleges and employers working together to increase the number of young people in Cumbria entering higher education.

We are a government-funded project which will initially run until August 2019. As a government funded project, our work must focus on certain areas within Cumbria. These are areas where young people have historically been less likely to enter higher education.

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.
