    Mr Ghasemi is employed by an organisation named the Higher Education Progression Partnership South Yorkshire (HeppSY+).

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.
