The LiNCHigher Award is a way for pupils to demonstrate independent learning and a commitment to higher education in years 10 and 11. The award encourages pupils to independently engage with material related to higher education and supports the NERUPI Framework and Gatsby 7 objectives. 

The award has been designed as a sustainable part of the careers programme in school, that pupils predominantly self-administer. The only additional administration required from school is the collection of award booklets with a teacher signatures and the distribution of certificates. 

It is not expected that all pupils in a year group will be able to complete the awards. 

Support booklets can be completed digitally or printed and completed by hand.
