Pre 2022

The Forum has acted as a space for practice sharing and for practitioners to seek advice from each other, facilitated conversations between university staff and the Student Loans Company on how best to advise students who are asylum seekers, and held Q&A sessions on quality marks for work with care experienced learners.


The November 2022 meeting will be held online on Thursday 10 November. For more details please see below.
