NERUPI is running a series of online events for members this autumn on the BAME outcome gap.
The attainment gap between students from different backgrounds has now been accepted as a real and urgent issue for the HE sector. However, strategies for addressing this remain underdeveloped and solutions are not straightforward. To better understand the BAME outcome gap and to support constructive work towards real solutions, these events will focus on the broader cultural issues within the academy which are at the heart of the outcome disparity for some BAME students and look at some examples of best practice in the sector.
These will be half-day events and run online.
Please note all dates below are to be confirmed.
Event 1 - 14 October 2020
Event 2 - 11 November 2020
Event 3 - 3 December 2020
The third event is a panel discussion, an opportunity to debate the issues and start to identify constructive ways forward. Speakers from the previous events will be present at the panel discussion.
The full programme will be available shortly.
