Succeeding with non-traditional learners in HE | 6 March 2018 | University of Liverpool
The University of Liverpool, Queen’s University Belfast, and the Open University, with the support of the Forum for Access and Continuing Education (FACE), invite you to attend this one-day event, which will both identify the challenges facing learners from non-traditional backgrounds and present practical solutions to enable success in higher education (HE).
Students coming to HE through alternative routes to A levels (via BTEC or Access routes) and those who have been out of education for some time, often need transitional support to enable them to fully engage with the different learning environment of university. This one day workshop seeks to explore the challenges that such approaches present and what practical solutions institutions are adopting to address them. The event will contribute to the development of institutional Access Agreements and the development of Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) metrics.
For further information and registration details, please see this flyer.
Closing date for submission of 250 word abstract is: Friday 24th November 2017
