Participants will complete the training with a key combination of practical solutions they can implement in their institutions and new networks which can strengthen their equity work. The learning outcomes will include:
- An enhanced understanding of global practice in equitable access and success work: The programme will help participants to understand the evidence and theory where access, success and participation in HE is concerned. They will learn how HE institutions have effectively addressed challenges in the field of equitable access and success in HE.
- Developing the skills and knowledge to change the access and success landscape in their institution: Participants will develop their own action plans, which they can implement in their home institution to improve access and success in HE for disadvantaged groups.
- Becoming part of a professional supporting network: The training will provide opportunity for interaction with the participants of the World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED), therefore, they fully expect new bi-lateral and multi-lateral partnerships to emerge. The organisers will look to maintain relationships between participants. The outcomes that they are all aiming for in terms of equitable access and success will only happen by continued engagement and building on what this first capacity building training will achieve.
