NEON Summer Symposium 2019

Event Details
Lancaster University, UK
13 June 2019 - 14 June 2019

Taking place on Thursday 13th & Friday 14th June at Lancaster University, the National Education Opportunities Network (NEON) seventh annual Summer Symposium will focus on the ‘The third age of widening access. We are at the point of entering a new era in widening access. The strong focus on enabling access for working class adults gave way in the 2000s and 2010s for a fresh push towards increasing participation rates among young people in higher education. Now, widening access is moving to the ‘third age’ — where access and outcomes share centre stage. But will this new era look any differently from the past?

Bringing together key figures, policymakers, organisations and employers from across the sector who are committed to social mobility through widening access to higher education, The NEON Summer Symposium is one the most distinct and significant event for those working in the field in 2019.

More information is available on the NEON website.
