Widening Participation and Placements

24 October @ 9:15 am - 12:00 pm
Loading Events

Discussions surrounding widening participation and the social mobility of our students are perennially on the agenda, nationally, in the HE sector. For those of us on the ground, what can we do, practically, to increase the take up of placements by students from a range of disadvantaged (or less well-served) backgrounds?

How can we reach out to and better engage students with employability in a difficult economic climate and to support the development of their social capital? Furthermore, what suggestions can we share to engage employers in order to further these broad aims?

In an interactive session of participation and dialogue, our course leaders will facilitate discussions on ways to support the employability of disadvantaged student groups and ways to potentially overcome challenges and barriers to participation in placements.

Delegates will have the opportunity to network online, and to build their own toolkit of practical ideas and top tips to take away from the workshop.
