About the event
This one day event is being hosted by our NEON division.
The work practitioners do in widening access makes a positive contribution in the community and helps young people to understand the value and opportunities presented by higher education. It makes them feel that higher education is something they can strive towards and achieve – regardless of background.
It is universally recognised that key influencers play a major role on the pathways of young people and, despite the impact of activities designed to widen access for young people, they often rely upon the information and advice given by the people with whom they have close, sustained relationships. Such information and advice is often affected by a person’s own experience of higher education (or lack of it) and can be inaccurate or outdated.
Engaging with key influencers should be a key part of widening access. By working with key influencers the higher education sector is able to inform their views and dismiss many of the myths associated with higher education level qualifications.
