Bridging the gaps: Fair access to university and the professions
The Bridge Group is organising a conference on 'Bridging the gaps: Fair access to university and the professions' in London on 9 February 2016. This event aims to provide an opportunity for cross-sector debate on policy supporting social mobility, with a particular focus on university access and entry to the professions. The Bridge Group definition of policy is broad, including Government policy and the behaviours of employers, universities and the third sector.
The conference will feature the latest research, evidence and practice, including keynote addresses with Q/A; panel debates; round table seminar discussions; and networking. The full programme will be confirmed in the coming weeks, including specific topics within this scope.
Anna Ludwinek, Research manager in the Living Conditions and Quality of Life unit, will make a presentation on the recently published report Challenges of policy coordination for third-country nationals.
