Student voices at the heart of policy and planning, keeping The Promise:
What does ‘Fair Access’ mean to our care- experienced students?
Two Hub for Success Student Ambassadors, Charles Fernando and Steven Haig, analysed Sir Peter Scott’s CoWA Report, ‘Re-Committing to Fair Access: A Plan for Recovery 2021’.
- Read the report which they presented to the CEECEF Forum in Autumn 2021.
- Click here to read Charles’s letter to Sir Peter Scott, sent last week to accompany the report. Charles sets out three key challenges for the HE sector:
- To look beyond financial support for CE students and focus on quality of pastoral care.
- To consider the importance of intersectionality when thinking about how best to meet students’ needs.
- To monitor – and publish – graduate outcomes (both degree completion and graduate destinations) for care experienced students.
For children, young people and families with care experience:
We provide impartial, one-to-one support to help you get in, stay in, or return to education.
We know that having time and space for education often means getting other things sorted first: things like finances, housing, or childcare.
We value our learners’ voices, views and opinions and take these seriously
We have a learner advisory board, which guides and steers our work. If you would be interested in joining our board, contact us.
We can help you reach out to other services to find everything you need to support your studies.
For those supporting people with care experience:
We develop partnerships between FE, HE, local authorities and the third sector. Together we strive to improve local practice.
We put The Promise at the heart of everything we do, and champion the expertise that comes with lived experience.
At the HUB we are committed to making change.
We can provide training inputs and are working on a programme of virtual events for practitioners to share expertise in 2021.
