About the event
Following the NEON research published in 2019, Working Class Heroes – Understanding access to higher education for white students from lower socio-economic backgrounds, NEON are keen to support the sector by holding a one day summit to highlight this issue and bring it to the forefront of widening access work.
During the day we will:
- Review the latest research into the progression, retention and success of young white males from disadvantaged backgrounds
- Hear about the progress that has been made
- Share insights into current practice that specifically supports this target group
- Discuss future strategies to ensure HEIs can make progress in this important area
Please note that this event will be hosted by NEON, and will require the purchase of a ticket, which you can do here.
