As parents, carers and guardians of year 10 and 11 students, you are invited to attend a supporters’ evening, organised by GM Higher, at Bury College, on Wednesday 20th March 2019, between 6pm and 730pm.

Free parking is available adjacent to the venue, Bury College Enterprise Centre, after 6pm; metered on-street parking and paid town centre multi-storey car parks are also an option. The venue is a 5 minute walk from local bus and Metrolink services.

A complimentary buffet tea will be provided from 6pm.

During the event:

• You will get lots of information about student finance, making university applications, the range of higher education options available to your child, and the benefits of higher education in relation to careers and employability
• There will be the opportunity to ask questions of an experienced university staff member with several years’ university admissions experience – this a is a great chance to receive personalised, impartial advice
• You will meet current university/higher education students, and hear from them about their experiences
• Your child will receive personalised guidance from trained staff, and complete a short task which will help them make decisions about their futures

GM Higher will also be offering distance support for parents, carers and guardians through a dedicated WhatsApp hotline, on two dates, in April 2019.

Additionally, a visit to the University of Manchester, for both parents, carers and guardians and your year 10/11 children, will be available later in the year.
