      10:00 am - 11:30 am

This Working Group is organised by The University of Law and Birkbeck, University of London.

This group brings together practitioners from Outreach teams as well as those from Student Support to discuss their current practice and experiences of supporting disabled learners into and through HE. The group examines issues such as the respective benefits of targeted events versus inclusive events and the best approaches to making these events a success. Models of best practice are shared, assisting members in developing new activities within their own institutions and in refining activities they currently deliver.

Please join us and help to build this network. If you have any queries about this working group contact NEON.

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.
