HELOA conference: Supporting estranged students to higher education 23 October, Birmingham
SPA is delighted to announce this one-day HELOA conference in collaboration with Stand Alone and UCAS, focusing on applicants to higher education who are estranged from their families, i.e. those applying to study without family support.
Stand Alone will give an outline of who estranged students are and how their situation affects their application to university level study. UCAS is currently working with Stand Alone in order to better understand the needs of those who have become estranged from their families and how this cohort of learners can be better supported through the admissions process.
This conference is aimed at practitioners in admissions, outreach and student services.
