'Getting In and Getting On' - The Whole Student Life-cycle

The progression for disadvantaged young people is challenging at every level; they are less likely to study academically rigorous subjects at GCSE, they underachieve by over half a GCSE grade per subject and are less likely to progress onto A Level Post 16 study. They are less likely to progress to higher education and they are exponentially less likely to progress onto a highly selective university. And even when they have defied every trend, statistic and prediction, they suffer from long term disadvantage in the labour market.

We invite those from all sectors and stages to join us for a day of discussion to challenge disadvantage at every level. From primary to university, corporate business to charitable organisation, everyone has an important part to play in order to support ‘getting in and getting on’.

Join us for a range of dynamic and research led sessions on making tangible change to widening participation in the UK including:

  • King’s College London present new research on the travelling community – a gap in the WP mission
  • The Brilliant Club launch the Impact Toolkit
  • Parliamentary style debate in conjunction with Debate Mate featuring Professor Tom Ward, Deputy Vice Chancellor at the University of Leeds on the topic of ‘getting in and getting on.’
  • Workshops on every aspect of the student lifecycle… from primary to careers and everything in between… more updates to follow in the coming weeks!
