Supporting Care Leavers in Higher Education: Optimising Success through Understanding the Challenges

This event, supported by the Research Centre for Global Learning: Education and Attainment, will seek to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented to care leavers entering higher education. Delegates will be encouraged to exchange knowledge and experiences in effective strategies that universities can and have employed to support care leavers, from a range of different perspectives.

This event will also consider the current research and practice in this area, and generate questions that still need to be addressed to ensure universities, local authorities, and NGOs are supporting care leavers in order to optimise their success. As part of the World Access to Higher Education Day, this event aligns with the broader aim to encourage dialogue on equity policies across the globe.
