Access HE pan-London organisation for Higher Education

5 December 2016


Prepare to Succeed Conference 2016


Prepare to Succeed Conference 2016 is a FREE event.

Evidence from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (Hefce) shows clearly that many students from BAME backgrounds are not achieving the success in higher education (HE) they could be. This conference will examine how BAME students can be better supported to reach their potential in HE.

The Prepare to Succeed project, led by AccessHE, has involved 8 HEIs in London working with over 200 of their BAME students to develop student led resources and activities to improve the IAG BAME students receive when they enter HE.

This conference will showcase these resources, outline the innovative co-production methodology developed by AccessHE and bring together experts from across the HE sector to craft new ways of addressing inequalities holding back BAME students in England.

Speakers:

  • Nona McDuff – Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Kingston University London
  • Professor Kalwant Bhopal, Professor of Education and Social Justice at Southampton University
  • Richard Smith – Senior Higher Education Policy Adviser at HEFCE
  • Paul Sesay, Founder of National Diversity Awards
