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.
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.
