Mr Ghasemi started as a Graduate Intern at Wath Comprehensive back in November 2017 working as a Higher Education Engagement Assistant. He recently graduated with a BSc (hons) Health Related Exercise and Fitness degree from The University of Staffordshire.
Mr Ghasemi is employed by an organisation named the Higher Education Progression Partnership South Yorkshire (HeppSY+). Their remit is to work with young people to help increase the numbers of individuals progressing in to higher education. The majority of funding for this initiative is from the National Collaborative Outreach Program, which is a government funded project. His main objective is to assist in the organisation, coordination and delivery of relevant activities to students.
He also offers impartial advice in relation to higher education progression to students on an individual and group basis. He's based in the school library and more than happy to be contacted in school if any further information is required and to help where possible.
Higher education isn't just university, there are many work-based options such as school-leaver schemes and degree apprenticeships. If you are considering going into higher education, take some time to chat with Mr Ghasemi.
Additionally, the Sixth Form section of our website has some information regarding the University and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS) and their application process.
