The Higher Education Progression Partnership South Yorkshire (also known as HeppSY) works out of Barnsley College and is based in the Job Shop at Old Mill Lane.
HeppSY works with specific students from postcode areas where there is a lower number of people progressing into Higher Education. This could be anywhere in South Yorkshire where Higher Education was not traditionally the norm. HeppSY works primarily with these students but can also work with other students in a group setting. The staff offer bespoke activities centered around Higher Education and it is a completely impartial service. Activities that the service offers include: trips to universities, workshops (e.g. personal statements), myth buster presentations, organising external speakers to come into college and 1:1 mentoring support for HeppSY students. Trips can often be fully funded by HeppSY if the majority of students on the trip are HeppSY students.
If there is any particular activity that you would like, please contact the Job Shop team.
