This Working Group provides a space for WP Practitioners to share best practice and research on the sustainability of early WP interventions.
The group promotes working with primary age children as part of the widening access agenda, building on the OfS recommendation of an evidenced based approach to early sustained WP interventions. The group provides a network for practitioners to meet and discuss common issues of concern, evaluations of projects and to develop joint initiatives and partnerships.
Please join us and help to build this network. If you have any queries about this working group, please contact us at NEON@londonhigher.ac.uk
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.
