27 January 2021, morning: Priorities for the higher education admissions system, Westminster Higher Education Forum policy conference

This conference will consider priorities for the admissions system in light of the recent confirmation of the Government’s intentions to move forward with post-qualification admissions reform, in collaboration with the sector, as soon as possible, as well as:

  • the recent Government consultation on a move to a post-qualifications admissions (PQA) system with Government expected to formally respond in due course
  • the publication UCAS report, Reimagining UK Admissions, which advocated a move to a post-qualification offer (PQO) system
  • the admissions reviews led by the OfS and the UUK.

This will also be an opportunity for delegates to assess the impact that COVID-19 has had on university admissions, with the OfS ban on ‘conditional unconditional’ offers, and research from UCL which found predicting A-Level grades to be a ‘near-impossible task’, and that it has harmed high achievers from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The agenda is structured to bring out latest thinking on:

  • government priorities for admissions reform
  • the challenges presented by PQA models and how best to overcome them
  • supporting and empowering students throughout reform, and ensuring no one is left behind
  • making sure reform is UK-wide and takes into account priorities for devolved nations, such as timetabling and qualification options.

Speakers include: Dr John Blakeley, Policy Advisor, Widening participation and Student Experience, Department for Education; John Cope, Director, Strategy, Policy & Public Affairs, UCAS; Rebecca Gaukroger, Director, Student Recruitment and Admissions, The University of Edinburgh; Jazreel Goh, Country Director, Malaysia, British Council; Dr Beth Linklater, UCAS; and Professor Graham Virgo, University of Cambridge

 

8 February 2022: ‘Diversifying Leadership’

15 February 2022, ‘The Secret Life of Students 2002’, Wonkhe, Business Design Centre, London

Through the theme of ‘Doing Diversity Differently’, this event will be rethinking the model of designing learning environments based on an imagined “normal” student and then applying sticking plaster interventions based on diverse student characteristics. A new approach is needed to stay in step with how students think about diversity, experience higher education in diverse ways, and what a genuinely diverse student body might need from professionals, and each other to feel that they belong in higher education.

The event will reflect on the findings of the UPP Foundation’s Student Futures Commission due out the same day, and consider developments in regulatory regimes for access, diversity and equality. Think through how engaging with students’ lived experience can transform strategy, policy and delivery, and consider what students are experiencing and saying about harassment and discrimination, and the boundaries between security and freedom.

3 March 2022: Mental Health and Wellbeing Conference 2022, Advance HE

It is increasingly recognised how important mental health and wellbeing is for staff and student success. Universities and colleges are fast developing ‘whole institution approaches’ to mental health and wellbeing, not only to improve academic outcomes and retention, but to provide a holistic and positive experience, even in the most challenging times. This one-day conference, organised by the Mental Wellbeing in Higher Education Expert Group in collaboration with Advance HE, will discuss new ideas and will aim to provide a boost in motivation and a fresh vision for all delegates. It will explore established and successful examples from the sector, share good practice, discuss the challenges when looking at mental health and wellbeing, and review ways to overcome possible difficulties.

16-17 March 2022: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Conference 2022: ‘Inclusive Institutions in Action’

In the last two years, we have seen a resurgence of voices protesting inequality (racial injustice and the Black Lives Matter Movement, the impact of Covid on existing inequalities, sexual harassment and violence) and a growing interest across the HE and FE sectors in responding to and working with this energy to create meaningful and sustainable change. Increasingly, we are asking what it looks like when

  • institutions respond positively to the diversity of voices, energy and scholarship advocating for change?
  • the voices from the margins are welcomed centre stage, and inclusion is at the heart of our approach to institutional culture?
  • our leadership models and practices are truly inclusive?
  • we seek out, develop, value and celebrate change agents from outside traditional hierarchies, talent pools and scholarship?
  • the complexity of identity and intersectionality informs thinking and practice and shapes new approaches to inclusion and building belonging?

This Advance HE conference offers an opportunity to think deeply and creatively about what it means to be an inclusive institution, to explore models of inclusion that challenge traditional concepts of leadership and agency, and to share innovative practice around collaboration, co-ownership, allyship and solidarity.

 

24 March 2021, morning: ‘Next steps for the Turing Scheme – implementation so far, growing international partnerships and the role of FE, and widening social and economic benefits’, Westminster Higher Education Forum policy conference

The conference will discuss priorities, challenges, and opportunities for implementation of the Turing Scheme, following the initial rollout of the UK Government’s replacement for Erasmus+. The agenda also looks at the role of the Turing scheme in aiding social mobility and developing international partnerships. It takes place alongside recent initiatives from the DfE which aim to boost the teaching of languages – including increased funding for Mandarin, French, German, and Spanish – as well as measures to improve the accessibility of language learning.

Speakers include: Stephanie Harris, Head of International Engagement, Universities UK; Emma Meredith, International Director, Association of Colleges; Lise Bakke Brøndbo, Oslo Metropolitan University; Alizée Cordes, Teeside University; Professor Robin Mason, University of Birmingham; and Benthe Tanghe, Newcastle University and Newcastle University Students’ Union. Book here.

 

28 March 2022: ‘Identifying and reaching estranged students’, Stand Alone virtual conference

The biggest challenge for universities and colleges is to know who their estranged students are. There are many different points at which estranged students can be identified pre-entry and on-course. In the near future there will be a UCAS tick box for estranged students to self-identify at application stage and UCAS will talk about what that will look like and when it will be live. But that’s only one method. Many higher education providers have developed their own ways to successfully identify and reach out to estranged students before they enrol, on enrolment and throughout the year. Though none are without challenges. This conference will highlight some of these approaches and their limitations. Reaching estranged students and making sure they apply for both the statutory and institutional support they are eligible for is also about getting the language right.

A panel of estranged students will explore that on the day. The final programme for this conference has not yet been finalised so this page will be updated again in the new year.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the conference please contact Susan Mueller, HE Director at Stand Alone, on s.mueller@standalone.org.uk

 

29 March 2022, morning: ‘Next steps for SEND provision in England’, Westminster Education Forum policy conference

The SEND review, improving standards and coordination, and supporting progression into HE and employment. This seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the future for SEND provision in England, following the expected publication of the Government’s ongoing SEND review. Delegates will consider priorities for improving provision in the context of a range of key developments, including the publication of the Government’s Disability Strategy 2021, Ofsted’s ‘SEND: old issues, new issues, next steps review’, and the APPG for SEND report, ‘Forgotten. Left behind. Overlooked’. Overall, the agenda will focus on:

  • improving provision for children with SEND:

31 March 2022: Race Equality Colloquium 2022

Part of Advance HE’s Race Equality in Higher Education programmes and events portfolio for 2021-22 this Race Equality Colloquium 2022 session looks at the continuing racial discrimination in higher education. With the sector’s focus on structural and institutional racism, we see growing tensions arising from differing cultural, ethnic and other identities, both on campus and in wider society.

By way of keynotes, panel sessions and workshops, this one-day virtual event will provide a safe space to discuss progress made, the challenges that lie ahead and the next steps that higher education institutions must take to address racial inequality in the sector.

 

4-6 April 2022: 2022 UKAT Annual Conference

Based on collective recent experiences, and new ways of doing academic advising and personal tutoring, the 2022 UKAT Annual Conference will explore how we might reimagine advising/tutoring so that it is more relevant to students, more effective at helping all students and institutions to achieve their intended outcomes, and more efficient in its operation. The conference will focus on five key themes:

  • digital technology
  • identity
  • community
  • equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • student-Centred Transformation

The Call for Proposals is now open, closing date: 6 January 2022. The 2022 UKAT Annual Conference will be an online conference to make it as accessible as possible to all who are interested in attending. For those who are able to meet in person, we are trying to arrange in-person, one day pre-conference study day to be held on Friday 1 April. Delegate registration for the conference and study day will open early in 2022.

 

26 April 2022: Employability Symposium, Advance HE

The Employability Symposium will provide attendees with a useful forum to encourage the exchange and dissemination of different ways of thinking about and new approaches to employability. It’s inescapable; employability is a prominent feature of contemporary higher education. Globally, HE providers are examining the methods they use to enhance employability and increasingly there is a desire to strengthen and develop relevant activities due to a range of factors and influences such as graduate destination data, labour market detail, policy impact, and student expectations. This symposium aims to bring together cutting-edge examples of how employability can be embedded at school, faculty/college and/or institutional levels. The symposium will be preceded by a call for contributions inviting practitioners to submit an abstract on their work as a stimulus presentation or case study to support the discussions.

 

28 April 2022: Surveys and Insights Symposium 2022, Advance HE

Surveys, measurement tools, metrics and insight have a key role to play in helping maximise the reach and quality of provision within the sector. This symposium provides an opportunity to discuss and debate the potential of insight from surveys, metrics, qualitative research and wider methods of capturing the voice of the student for driving excellence and enhancement within higher education. The conference will feature a keynote speaker alongside oral presentations and workshops from HE practitioners, survey officers and academics.

A call for papers for this event will open in December 2021.

 

29 April 2021, morning: ‘Next steps for supporting disabled students in Higher Education’, Westminster Higher Education Forum policy conference

This conference will discuss future priorities for supporting disabled students in Higher Education, including latest thinking around:

the impact of the pandemic on the experiences of disabled students in HE; streamlining the transition process to university, improving student life on campus and increasing awareness of available support; priorities for educational attainment and future pathways to postgraduate study and employment. Book here.

Delegates will consider what is needed to take forward the ambitions set out in the strategy and what more can be done to support students with disabilities as they transition from school to higher education – alongside steps which can be taken to increase the number of disabled graduates in employment. Further sessions look at how the experience of the pandemic can inform best practice in provision for disabled students going forward, including in terms of blended learning and support such as funding, as well as how the sector can best dovetail its approach with that outlined in the Disability Strategy. Speakers include: Nicola Turner, Policy Adviser, UCAS; Geoff Layer, Chair, Disabled Students’ Commission; and Vice Chancellor, University of Wolverhampton; Helen Saelensminde, Chief Executive Officer, Snowdon Trust; Sean Cullen, Brunel University London; Geena Vabulas, Policy Connect; Anna Ward, University of Cambridge; Mette Westander, Disabled Students UK; and Danie Woodbridge, Buckinghamshire New University.

 

4 May 2022: ‘Race Equality in Transformative Times: Exploring intersections of minority-racialised identity and neurodiversity’, Advance HE.

The permanence of structural racism as a feature of the higher education (HE) environment has been highlighted in at least six reports that have been published in the past four years within the UK HE sector. Structural racism refers to the extent to which policies, practices and processes facilitate and sustain privileges for one racialised group at the expense of another as a normal feature of the environment. The interplay between structural racism and neurodiversity, and the extent to which intersectional discrimination impacts on students’ educational experiences or access to higher education also remains underexplored. By contextualising structural racism and neurodiversity through an intersectional lens, the colloquium aims to illuminate and illustrate ways in which colleges and universities across the sector can develop more inclusive environments, broaden and embed more inclusive practices and provide holistic support for students with neurodiverse differences who are racialised as minorities in HE.

The overarching theme of the colloquium is Exploring intersections of minority-racialised identity and neurodiversity and it will address five sub themes. Submissions are now open for workshops and presentations on exploring intersections of minority-racialised identity and neurodiversity in the following sub-themes.

  • Higher education policy;
  • Assessment;
  • Student success and achievement;
  • Student progression;
  • Engagement and student experience;
  • Flexible learning.

The deadline for submissions is midnight 14 February 2022.

 

12 May 2022: Student Engagement Conference 2022, Advance HE

Student engagement has never been more important or more challenging. This conference will provide an opportunity for the sector to come together to review where we’ve been and to consider where we go next. It will focus on the engagement of students in all aspects of their higher education, from the ‘classroom’ to extracurricular activities including leadership and governance; asking what does it mean to lead student engagement, and how can we continue to improve our vision of student engagement? The conference will consider leadership of student engagement through a 360º lens including the role of all staff, the Student Union, and the community as well as considering how we ensure inclusive engagement and remove all inequalities.

 

6-9 June 2022: Standing Conference on University Teaching and Research in the Education of Adults (SCUTREA) and the Universities Association for Lifelong Learning (UALL)

This joint and collaborative conference hosted by the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Research & Development in Adult and Lifelong Learning (CR&DALL). Bringing together practitioners, activists, policy makers and academics from around the globe, the conference will be looking forward, as well as marking significant milestones – in particular the 50th anniversary of SCUTREA.

The focus of the conference is on research, practice and policy with innovation at its heart.

 

16-17 June 2022: NEON annual Summer Symposium, Keele University.
2022 Summer Symposium will mark 10 years since NEON was founded in 2012. As with any other organisation a 10th birthday provides an opportunity both to reflect and look forward. At our 10th symposium the theme will be what success means in terms of widening access and participation in higher education.
The conference will focus on initiatives and activities that have had clear, measurable impact over the last 10 years as well as those which consider what constitutes success for learners, schools, colleges, universities and policy makers. The government seeks to ‘reboot’ widening access work and place a stronger emphasis on ensuring learners from under-represented groups achieve good graduate outcome. This is the time for those in the widening access community to put forward their vision of success and help shape the discussion for the Office for Students, universities and the government regarding what widening access work should look like over the next 10 years of NEON’s like and what it should be striving to achieve.
Bringing together key figures from across the education sector, policymakers and employers with organisations from across sectors committed to social mobility through widening access to HE, thus NEON’s Summer Symposium will be the most important event for those working in the field in 2022.



5-7 July 2022: Teaching and Learning Conference 2022: Teaching in the spotlight: Where next for enhancing student success?
Advance HE
