Humber Outreach Programmes Online Initiatives
The last eight months have been challenging for everyone but HOP was up for the challenge! As a result of COVID-19, we at HOP have used this as an opportunity to create digital resources to continue to raise the aspirations of young people from less advantaged backgrounds, with the goal of increasing their awareness of and participation in further and higher education. HOP is over the moon to announce new online initiatives- HOPathways, The Pay Index and The Access Platform.
HOPathways is an integrated system with LogOnMoveOn, Linc2 and Lincs4U meaning that HOPathways can be found via the HOP website www.hop-humber.co.uk and also through the careers sites for Hull, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.
HOPathways has resources to help with:
- Pathways for the future
- Pathways to exam success
- Pathways to build resilience
- Pathways to support wellbeing
- Pathways to motivate
With access* to free materials that include exciting videos, guided workbooks and the possibility of rewards and incentives too, HOPathways is easy to access and use and is perfect for individual and class delivery but also for remote or blended learning too.
*Check with your school/college HOP Coordinator for details of modules available.
The Pay Index is a digital application to help students as they begin their decision-making processes, leading to an individual Comparative Opportunities Report related to My Future: University and My Future: Apprenticeships.
The Pay Index’s mission is to provide pay transparency through data and visualisations over the course of a school student’s lifetime-celebrating every milestone they achieve and sign-posting what they require along the way.
Students can access The Pay Index and see the benefits of University and apprenticeships relevant to them by scrolling through reports that answer questions such as:
- Where to study?
- Where might you go next?
- What will University mean for your future career?
- What apprenticeships are available?
- What financial information matters to you?
- Does it matter where you live?
The Pay Index helps students think through the complexity of making choices to help make the best choice for their future.
The Access Platform is our website instant chat feature that helps connect students with our ambassadors. This feature allows students, teachers or parents to ask questions directly to our team and get a response within 24 hours. It’s very important for us at HOP to be able to communicate and connect with people even more so of with the impact COVID-19.We hope this feature will allow students particularly to get in touch regarding their future education and career so that we can give personal and relevant guidance. No question is a stupid question! Speak to HOP!
HOP is confident that these online initiatives allow us to continue helping young people make informed, confident decisions about their future through relevant, impartial information and experience.
