NERUPI is running a series of online events for members this autumn on the BAME outcome gap. Scroll down for the booking form.
The programme is now available to download here:
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.
Event 1 - 14 October 2020, 2:00-5:00 pm
Event 2 - 11 November 2020, 2:00-5:00 pm
Event 3 - 3 December 2020, 2:00-5:00 pm
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.
