We are here to provide support to schools and colleges throughout the Humber region.

HOP (Humber Outreach Programme) is a partnership of Higher Education Institutions, schools, academies and colleges. Our programme aims to raise the aspirations of young people from less advantaged backgrounds through exciting and challenging opportunities, with the goal of increasing their awareness of and participation in further and higher education.

HOP is active across the Humber region, and our teams work together to help our young people make informed, confident decisions about their futures through relevant, impartial information and experience.

We provide exciting and challenging opportunities for young people in years nine to thirteen and for those aged 19+. Alongside this, we also signpost schools, parents and teachers to local outreach opportunities and information.

All activity and aims are shaped by the Progression Framework themes explained below:

The Pay Index

The Pay Index is an online interaction tool that has been designed to help school and college students as they begin their decision-making processes about further education and future careers.

The Pay Index’s tool is made up of easy-to-understand information that users can personalise to help them explore universities and apprenticeships. Their tools also give young people an insight into how much different professions get paid and other financial information depending on the options they have selected.

The Pay Index is dedicated to helping school and college students to seriously consider all of the choices in front of them, to help them make the best choice for their future.
School and college students within the Humber region can access The Pay Index for free sign-up here or scan the QR code below.
