What is involved in HHP Plus?
HHP Plus works alongside a post-16 enrichment programme and the information, advice and guidance support delivered within school or college settings.
After a self-assessment, learners complete seven activities – three mandatory and four optional. They reflect on these throughout the scheme in a learning log.
All learners identify their requirements with a self-assessment. They can then choose activities and experiences that best meet their needs.
There are three mandatory activities, which are based on three themes – believe, discover and succeed.
- Believe - learners visit a HE institution and talk to a current student.
- Discover – learners reflect on their experiences in a learning log throughout the scheme.
- Succeed – learners complete two university study skill challenges. For example, attending sessions on effective note taking, presenting with impact or working in a group.
Learners also choose four optional activities, which will equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to go into higher education.
These cover topics including:
- student life
- higher education finance
- independent living skills
- work experience
- summer schools
- graduate jobs.
More details are in the optional activities guide.
UWE Bristol delivers a wide range of outreach activities in partner schools and colleges. This helps learners to find out more and develop the skills to succeed at university.
These activities include:
- Student Ambassador talks
- Subject area talks
- Interactive workshops
- Subject Taster days
“I found out about sociology whilst attending a taster day and it’s the best thing that has happened to me really. I’d never have thought of that before.”
