Go Further (East Sussex)
A collaborative college approach to supporting progression and raising aspirations
The Go Further Team support young people to explore higher education and other Level 4 options. Their aim is to help young people understand and navigate the barriers they may face in their progression, and enable them to make a well-informed choice for their futures.
The team members are Level 6 qualified advisors and alongside UCAS support, provide impartial CEIAG (Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) to students. They work collaboratively with local schools, alternative education providers, colleges and community programmes to support transition into further and higher education.
A well-established peer-coach programme provides East Sussex College learners with study support and revision coaching for local Year 11 students. Working alongside peer coaches, the Go Further Team is developing online support and social media platforms to build a community of students and alumni who will create a legacy of information, communication and support.
