University student ambassadors play a significant role in supporting the outreach activity of Higher Education (HE) systems in the UK and internationally. This event considers the ways in which ambassadors are working with schools and will include presentations on research evidence and practice from the UK and other international settings. Exploring the rich potential of collaboration and co-construction will be a focus of the day.

I am pleased to say that, following our successful QAA funded pilot last year, NERUPI is able to offer the Peer Evaluation Course more widely. Designed for colleagues with some experience of evaluation the course provides opportunities to share and build expertise in different evaluation approaches and methods. The course combines collaborative learning with a process of Peer Review and will include: an initial, full day, in-person workshop in London; four online sessions; a two-day residential in Bath; conducting and receiving a Peer Review; a final, full day, in-person workshop in London.
