AccessHE is pleased to open registration for the second event in the London Student Outcomes series – Enabling success for learners from widening participation backgrounds – taking place 09:30 – 13:00 on Tuesday 6 February 2018 at Senate House, University of London. The event will be chaired by Professor Paul Ivey, Pro-Vice-Chancellor at London South Bank University.

Improving the attainment and outcomes of learners from all social backgrounds is one of the five goals of the Office for Students (OfS). This event will explore the unique challenges facing London institutions in supporting learners from all social backgrounds to fulfil their potential, bringing institutions together to better understand how to improve outcomes for all and close unexplained gaps between different social groups. It will include examples of leading practice in student success work from London institutions.

Speakers include:

  • •  Alistair McNaught – Subject Specialist, Accessibility and Inclusion, Jisc
  • •  Nikki Anghileri – Head of Learning Development, St Mary’s University, Twickenham
  • •  Robyn Fitzharris – Student Success Project Manager, Brunel University London

Who should attend?

We anticipate attendees will include those in learning and teaching, student experience teams and widening participation or student engagement. It is anticipated the event will inform new collaborative work in 2018-19 to address the student success challenge in London.

Attendance is FREE for AccessHE members and £25 for non-members.

This is the second event in the AccessHE London Student Outcomes series, exploring four key emerging themes in widening participation across the full student lifecycle. Future events in the series will look at degree apprenticeships as a widening access opportunity and post-HE progression for learners from under-represented groups.
