Action on Access and UUK are hosting a summit on student success and access.
The Access to HE and Student Success Summit: Joining the Dots from Action on Access, together with Universities UK, on 13 November. Be there or miss out on your this year’s rounded and informed view for all delegates of widening participation issues across the student journey; together with opportunities for delegate contribution to the Summit and to network.
Three respected and experienced key note speakers: Chris Millward, Director Fair Access and Participation, OfS; Helen Thorne, MBE, Director of External Relations at UCAS, Stephen Isherwood, Chief Executive of the Institute of Employers.
Choices of workshops: parallel sessions on the support and advice to widening participation students by advisers in Sixth Forms, the work of professional academic advisers, and the work of Student Unions.
Sessions on care leavers, beyond-institutional and collaborative work, embedding accessibility and compliance in online and digital content.
And a John Storan-facilitated guided discussion with experts on the wider and economic benefits of widening participation and improved student success and employability, i.e. examining the cost-effective Widening Participation Interventions.
