  • Time

    11:00 am - 3:00 pm

This Working Group focuses on sharing ideas and existing practice around supporting BTEC students, as well as research being undertaken in this space, we hope that this will lead to a more joined up approach across the sector.

Speaker for the meeting will include:

Alex Blower, University of Wolverhampton

Drawing on data from his doctoral research, Alex will examine the social conditions in which a white working-class male student negotiates his expectations for the future in education and work. Focusing on the case of a single participant whose intention was to attend a local college, the presentation will examine the complex, historically embedded nature of educational decision making, and its influence on which educational trajectories are deemed to be possible.


The meeting is kindly hosted by IntoUniversity on Tuesday 16th July 2019 from 11am.
