As a professional association of higher education staff, we have a wealth of expertise in student recruitment,outreach, marketing and admissions and recognise that sharing of good practice and sector knowledge can benefit a variety of stakeholders across the sector.

We have undertaken a variety of collaborative projects with differing organisations across the sector and are keen to develop this work further, where there is acknowledged benefit to either our membership and/or the sector, or in line with our vision ‘supporting potential students make an informed decision about their future in education’.

HELOA is working in collaboration with:


UniTasterDays.com is a unique, invaluable and up-to-date source of UK university taster events, workshops and open days for schools and colleges. Through the UniTasterDays.com site, schools and colleges can quickly search for, request, or join a mailing list of university events. Events are added by universities using an administration portal which offers real-time updates.

HELOA members have worked closely with UniTasterDays to develop expert content for their annual Teachers’ Guide to University, from the Gatsby Benchmarks to student finance- it’s all covered.

More recently, HELOA have worked with UniTasterDays to develop a survey for careers advisors and teachers reviewing University information, advice and guidance. The results of this survey and recommended actions will be explored at the HELOA Annual conference in 2019.
