NEON Summit: Securing positive outcomes for disabled learners 


We have a duty not only under the Equality Act, but as individuals to help secure equal access to higher education for learners with disabilities, but how can we best ensure that this responsibility is met? How can we translate duty into practice, to use our resources to most effectively reach our ideal and to support learners with disabilities through to post-HE success?

NEON is hosting a one day summit aimed at addressing these questions. During the event, delegates will:

  • Consider how to best listen to learners with disabilities in order to genuinely support them
  • Receive a briefing from sector bodies about the importance of this issue in the current policy landscape
  • Learn about best practice through the examination of two successful case studies
  • Be the first to engage with new research revealed at the summit
  • Engage with the student voice by interacting with a panel of current students from this group
  • Develop the work you are doing at your own institution or organisation through group work with practitioners from across the country and the summit’s presenters.

The format of the summit will be a mixture of presentations, group working and panel discussions in order to provide a varied approach to tackle this issue.

NEON Summits are designed to be applicable to practitioners, academics and researchers from HEIs, FECs, NCOPs and third sector organisations.

Places at this event are strictly limited so early booking is advisable.
