This one day course will look at transition programmes for under-represented groups. By the end of the day delegates will:

  • Understand and be able to apply theories about transition and it’s important for under-represented groups
  • Have considered why transition is especially vital for students from under-represented groups
  • Have looked at different strategies for student transition and consider the benefits and challenges of each strategy
  • Be able to design a student transition programme that supports those from widening access backgrounds

This training is designed to give delegates the chance to develop both their knowledge and skills needed as a WP practitioner as well as provide a comfortable space to discuss the latest issues with colleagues from other organisations.
