Mission: HE

Event providers: University of Salford, University of Bolton

Mission: HE Logo

Mission: HE is an established project within the Greater Manchester Higher offers. It is focused specifically on white working-class male students, with pupils from this demographic identified as a group who would benefit from role model-focused interventions in order to help them imagine a future for themselves within education beyond school age.

Sessions include: teamwork, revision skills, college/uni insight, ‘The Chase’ – a consolidation activity based on the television show, and an insight into future skills.

All interested schools must be able to adhere to the following conditions:

  • Agree to have a staff member present at any/all sessions at all times (non-negotiable).
  • Honour all five sessions so the pupils benefit from the full project as intended.
  • Run the programme in school time.
  • Get involved in the sessions and assist with pupil engagement.

Failure to adhere to the above may result in us cancelling the project.

Mission: HE is run by The University of Salford in partnership with The University of Bolton.
