About HireHigher

Paving the way

At 16 we eat the food our parents cook us, dress the way our friends do, read the books our teachers tell us to and yet at the same time we’re being asked to plan the next 40 years of our lives. Contradiction much?

  • What do you want to be when you’re older?
  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
  • Have you thought about university?
  • Would an apprenticeship be more suitable for you?

These questions can be intense, many overwhelming and for far too many young people in the UK result in a knee jerk reaction. It’s true that many “work it out” - but we believe that more structure, guidance, support and peer to peer learning can be made available to young people.

What we do

It’s simple really, we are here to offer an helping hand to students who have some big decisions to make.

Whether that be knowing the difference between a university degree and an apprenticeship qualification, if a start up company is better for you than a structured graduate scheme, or if it really is possible to make scrambled egg in the microwave!

Whatever it may be HireHigher are here to ensure you feel like you have the choice to decide how to take the next step on your life career ladder.

Here at HireHigher, we work with schools, universities and employers to build the stepping stones to ensure one leap to the next is as smooth as possible for all young people. We want to ensure that young people entering post-16 education feel they have choices and options, regardless of their passions and exam results.

Our vision: To ensure that all young people in the UK feel they left post-16 education knowing their options.
