Collaboration Capital session 1 – widening access to London HE

Sign up to Collaboration Capital session 2

This informal networking session is intended for staff at AccessHE members who want to build their awareness of the landscape of widening access initiatives and partners in London. It will be of interest to staff with responsibility for developing and delivering collaborative widening access projects and/or for overseeing access partnerships. 

The event will spotlight organisations supporting HE progression through innovative programmes, including for care experienced young Londoners, prison leavers in London, and other priority groups listed in the Equality of Opportunity Risk Register.  

Organisations in attendance include: 

  • Switchback. Switchback is based in East London and works with young prison-leavers.  
  • Team Up. Team Up delivers tutoring in primary and secondary schools across London, with a particular focus on pupils from low-income backgrounds.  
  • House Project Islington. House Project Islington delivers 6-9-month support programmes for care experienced young Islington residents as they make transitions to greater independence.

This session forms part of our Collaboration Capital event series, providing our members with an informal space in which to meet and network with local access and participation partners. The overarching aim of the series is to help our members to build ‘collaboration capital’ across all stages the student lifecycle by increasing awareness of relevant organisations as well as their programmes and their approaches to partnering with higher education institutions.  

Sessions 2 and 3 will map student success and student progression initiatives, respectively. You can find information on those sessions on our Events page.
