The primary target audience is widening participation and outreach practitioners although careers advisers, careers leaders and other professionals who are interested in widening access to university might also want to attend.
These concise and informative twilight sessions will cover a range of topics and follow an interactive Q&A panel discussion format. The panel guests will introduce themselves and briefly talk on the topic, then the floor will open so attendees have the opportunity to ask questions.
Details about panelists and guest speakers will be updated on an on-going basis.
