Breaking Barriers to Higher Education | In School & Beyond

Interactive online training for education practitioners to understand widening participation and how, by participating in the agenda, we can help students in school and beyond to overcome barriers to higher education

Introducing the new accredited training for schools

This free online training session developed by the SUN, is designed to provide an overview and insight into Widening Participation, and how practitioners can support and encourage it. This CPD has achieved certified accreditation status by The CPD Certification Service and can therefore count towards any CPD hours you may be working towards. 



Professionals working in the education sector and/or with young people will benefit the most from this CPD opportunity.

It is suitable for: School and college staff working in a variety of roles including teachers, careers advisors, pastoral staff, virtual schools/college and educational professionals working in other roles. It is also relevant to local authorities; particularly those working in social care and colleagues from other departments who you feel may benefit from this session.
