Student Engagement: How the Student Community can shape widening access

Recordings and presentations from the SCAPP event

We welcomed 50 practitioners from across the university, college, student union and student association and careers sector on Tuesday 29th March 2022 to this event.  We explored a number of key questions, demonstrated in a number of different ways by our presenters. This included:

  • How can Widening Access and Participation practitioners work more closely with Students’ Associations to raise awareness of each others’ activities
  • What more can be done by working together to shape provision and activity to support learners from the most disadvantaged backgrounds
  • What role can Student Associations play in bringing Widening Access and Participation practitioners together to shape activity
