The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership provides a range of activities, workshops and information sessions covering all aspects of student life and access to university, delivered by our fully trained team of Higher Education Ambassadors.

Our sessions are tailored to meet the differing requirements of students from Year 2 through to Year 11, providing informative, engaging activities to ensure your students come away from the session with an understanding of their options post-compulsory education.


We provide a programme of activity for primary age pupils from Year 2 through to Year 6. Our Supporting Primary workshop aims to introduce the concept of university to pupils while building enthusiasm around education and further study. In the summer term, we offer a transition workshop for pupils moving up to Secondary School. This introduces some of the different aspects of secondary school and the journey through education from leaving primary to their options for post-compulsory education. You can find out more about our Key Stage 2 activities on the Primary page.


Pupils in Year 7-11 can benefit from our range of activities and workshops created to introduce Higher Education to younger years and offer an in-depth exploration of university to older years. From accommodation to study options, student finance to student life, your students will come out of the sessions with a greater understanding of the components that make up Higher Education, their ability to access further study and their post-compulsory education options.

Our fully-trained team of Higher Education Ambassadors can also deliver sessions to parents and carers covering UCAS and Student Finance, providing key information, challenging misconceptions, and giving them the tools to support young people in their decision-making and application process.
