What to expect
This one day course will look at strategies to benefit widening access students. By the end of the day delegates will:

  • Understand and be able to apply theories about transition and its important to student success in their own work
  • 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
  • Understand the relationship between day students and institutional loyalty
  • 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.
