Welcome to Aimhigher
Aimhigher is a partnership of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), schools, academies and colleges. Together, we want to make sure that young people from less advantaged backgrounds have access to high quality, exciting and challenging experiences that enhance their careers education, motivate, inspire and provide accurate and impartial information, advice and guidance about higher education.
2013/14 Programme Confirmed
Our partner universities have agreed to continue their support for Aimhigher until 2015, committing over £1 million to the programme. We now invite West Midland schools, academies and colleges to share in this commitment, and ensure young people continue to have the opportunity to Aimhigher.

Aimhigher's Annual Review 2011 / 2012 tells the stories of some of the young people we have worked with during the last year. It also recognises the support of all our partners and the many schools, academies and colleges whose commitment to widening participation and social mobility has made the continuation of Aimhigher in the West Midlands possible.
We constantly evaluate the impact our work has on young people, and have recently produced a brief summary of our findings. You can download the evidence here:
