‘Supporting Disabled Learners into and through Higher Education’

This meeting will focus on the focus on the new Strategy for Access and Student Success (SASS) which all HEIs will be required to produce, setting out their commitment to widening participation and to supporting targeted learners throughout the whole student life cycle. The SASS is likely to look to have a focus on Equality and Diversity and how Institutions bring the WP and E&D agendas together. The SASS will focus on the whole student life cycle and will therefore draw attention to equality of opportunity and outcomes as well as access. The meeting will explore what equality issues there for disabled learners and how Institutions are taking action to overcome disadvantage.

Attendance at Working Group meetings is free to NEON members. Non-members are welcome to attend but there is a fee of £80 per meeting.
