SCAPP Directory of Networking and Expertise
As part of SCAPP’s ongoing activities to connect professionals engaged in widening participation research, evaluation and practice, we are working to develop a knowledge exchange of information and activity. This is designed to improve communication, sharing of practice and to develop a hub to enable collaboration, promote availability of research and evaluation or project funding, and to connect individuals or organisations where supply and demand of practice can be met.
We have developed a SCAPP Directory of Expertise and Networking to do this and colleagues across the sector are invited to input to this. The Directory collates and publicises information about professionals engaged in the practice, research and evaluation of widening access and widening participation work within Further and Higher Education and the charity/voluntary and other public and private sector organisations.
The aim is to improve engagement across the roles and encourage collaboration and best practice sharing which can be disseminated and shared across the SCAPP network. This may enable us to, for example, connect those who are looking for research or evaluation work to be undertaken with those who are available to undertake that work. We also hope to have best practice, networking and knowledge exchange events to which widening participation colleagues engaged in a range of activities can meet and disseminate work.
This information will be available ultimately on the Fair Access website www.fairaccess.scot
If you are interested in inputting to this Directory, we look forward to receiving information via the attached link below. There is no deadline to input to this Directory.
I would be grateful if you could share this with colleagues within your network who you think would be interested in being part of this Directory.
If you require any further information at this stage, please contact Muriel Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that this is a resource that you will be interested in being part of and we look forward to hearing from you.
