Access HE pan-London organisation for Higher Education

Schools / Colleges

AccessHE wants to enable schools and colleges across London to support learners from under-represented backgrounds to go on to and succeed in suitable higher education. Together with our member HEIs, we are proud to be the conduit for a wide range of collaborative projects and initiatives to support these groups throughout their learner journeys (access – retention – success). To keep our 500+ school and college Advocates updated, we distribute fortnightly e-bulletins that publicise outreach activities offered by member HEIs as well as relevant news and updates from the sector.

If you would like to nominate an Advocate for your school or college (and benefit from FREE AccessHE membership), please click here.

Careers Professionals

We recognise that in the post-Connexions world of impartial careers information, advice and guidance, the Careers Professional is often an independent consultant, employed by a school or college to deliver mandatory careers support to learners to help them make informed decisions about post-16 and post-18 options. We also recognise that young people (together with their parents and carers) are more career-focused than ever before and therefore, when it comes to making a decision about higher education, graduate career destinations are also important.

In response to this, and in preparation for the publication of the Government’s Career Strategy, we are beginning to form a database of careers professionals – working in schools, colleges and higher education institutions – to support them in their valuable work with learners from under-represented backgrounds.

If you would be interested in joining this group to inform its work going forward, please contact Richard Boffey (Deputy Head of AccessHE) at
