At Hepp we want to encourage young carers to consider higher education opportunities. We understand that as a young carer, you may be nervous and worried about the thought of going to university or college. With the help of our booklet, “A guide for young carers considering higher education” we provide lots of information to help you in your decision. For further information, activities and clips scroll down the page.
Universities and other higher education providers, offer a lot of support to help you achieve your higher education and career goals. They want to find ways to make higher education work for you. Being a young carer should never stop you from reaching your dreams, ambitions, or goals.
Going to university or college can:
- open up many more career opportunities and develop and further your life skills
- allow you to gain the skills you need to help get your dream job, and potentially earn more money in your working life
- give you the chance to make lasting friendships, adapt more quickly to a changing world and have greater self-confidence
If you have any questions however small, please get in touch using the Contact Us form. Hepp are here to help you reach your aspirations.
